Oct 25thDear Mr MuirI feel very very grateful to you for your letter about my article in "Out West". It is my first magazine article and yours is the first praise. I count your letter as the most precious one I ever received and I feel a few heads taller. I told Dr Jordan about it and he said "what Muir says goes, as he is the best authority on such subjects" Thank you very very much.I do hope the Bull Creek Redwoods03464
