ARNOLD ARBORETUM.I much need for my book fresh flowers of Abies magnifica ofboth sorts, that is with included and exserted cone-bracts. I have written to every one I know on the subject but the outlook for getting them this spring is not very promising. Do you know any one in the mountains who could gather and send them to me? I very much need them this spring and, curiously enough, they do not exist in any herbarium to which I have access.There appear to be a great many people in the east who want to see and know you. Are you ever coming this way again?Faithfully yours,John Muir, Esq.Martinez, Cal.02295
