ARNOLD ARBORETUM, HARVARD UNIVERSITY. JamaicPlain,Mass., April 5,1905. Dear Muir: Many thanks for your note. Glad you like the Manual which has cost me a year of as hard work as any I have ever done. Can't you make it known in California through the newspapers? I daresay there are many people in the state who might find it useful if they knew about it. It takes, you know, a long time for the knowledge of such things to get abroad. I like your flitting proposition pretty well and am thinking of it, but your beloved Crataegus is holding me pretty fast and I do not know if I cam tear myself away from this thorny path. Still I do want to see a little more of the world before I pass away from it. When are you coming east again? With kind regards to your wife and daughters, I am, Always faithfully yours, [illegible] John Muir, Esq., Martinez, Cal. 03553
