Martinez, Nov. 5, 1894. My dear Mrs. Carr: I take pleasure in sending you with this a copy of my first book. You will say that I should have written it long ago, but I begrudged the time of my young mountain-climbing days. We received your note and newspaper clippings and the Muir peak. I left Mrs. Muir to answer it, but suppose she has not. I am at work on another book. And in many ways am very busy. We are all well. Wanda is a woman and considerably taller then her mother. Helen is very smart and may write some day. I told a Mr. Drake of the Century Magazine to call on you a week ago. He is to be in Pasadena two months. With kindest regards to the Doctor and the boys,I am, Cordially yours, John Muir
