THE COSMOPOLITAN MAGAZINE1789 BROADWAYNEW YORK CITYJohn Muir -2- August 7 1905gladly hailed by me. But, as I cannot get on top of a skyscraper and preach to the multitude on this subject, I am awfully anxious to get somebody else to do it. By contracting this stupid city and its dull brick perspective with the woodland wilds in which you pass your time, I think you could make a fine article, particularly as there is a large back-to-nature sentiment afloat just now. This article would be about the same length as the other and would be paid in the same proportion.Hoping that you and Mrs. Muir are well, I remainSincerely yours, Bailly MillandJohn Muir, Esq.03602
