DOUBLEDAY, PAGE & COMPANYPUBLISHERS133-137 EAST SIXTEENTH STREET, NEW YORKTHE WORLDS WORKCOUNTRY LIFE IN AMERICANovember 13, 1906.Dear MR. Muir:You may recall that you ran up, on the train to California, in the summer, with one of the young men of the World's Work who was exceedingly delighted to meet you and with whom you were kind enough to talk. He put down some of your little stores and wanted me to publish them, and I have done so in the November number. There is nothing particularly new about them except that we are taking this liberty with you. Nor is there any particular reason why I should write you about it-except that any opportunity to write to you is too good to be lost; and whenever I write I cannot refrain from telling you that I am not going to dip or to stop03774
