[letterhead]Ogden, Utah, May 28. 1904Mr. John MuirMy dear Sir:-Please pardon me for intruding upon your time and attention. I have a son of fifteen who fairly lives upon your beautiful, breezy books and the out door experiences with which you have been blessed.He, too, has climbed the mountains all alone and has left his bed at midnight to look down oer storms below.So few boys care for real "roughing033602[letterhead]it" and it has occurred to me you might be willing to put me in touch with some party or parties making outing trips this summer and that I might pay his part of expense [&c?] and give references of his character and we could enter the woods as climb the mountains.He is intensely interested in Scientific Forestry and a tree he would protect above every thing I understand some people would consider my boy a nuisance03360
