[Gertrude F.] Boyle
45[First draft of letter, in note-book]Martinez, Jan. 27, '05.Dear Miss Boyle:Please find enclosed my subscription to "Ability." I heartily wish you success, though I fear you will find that the strain of literature is as heavy as that of modeling - a sort of "out of the frying-pan into the fire." Still, I admire your pluck, and wish you every success.As to contribution, I am unable to promise anything until I get some long promised books off my hands.[John Muir]Miss Gertrude F.
