These letters will be written by well-known persons. They are to be of two hundred to three hundred words each, and are supposed to contain brief sentiments, words of cheer, etc. We should esteem it a great favor if you would contribute one of these letters, for which we are willing to pay at the rate of ten cents a word.I would suggest that you write something on Mr. London's opportunities for observing nature with a scientific eye.Will you kindly send your communication to the editor of the Cosmopolitan, that they may be credited and a check sent to you. It will then be sealed and forwarded with any superscription on the envelope which you may suggest.Yours very trulyBailey MillardJohn Muir Esq03745
