In order to do this successfully, it is necessary that we should have a picture of you that could be used-one that is not copyrighted. Can you let ma have such a picture without any inconvenience? If we are successful in syndicating this article it will be published on May 12th, and if you can oblige us with a photograph, may I ask you to let us know at once, as the time is so short? Will you please pardon us for intruding upon you in this matter? It seems to be necessary in order to have the story appear to good advantage in the newspapers. Thanking you in advance, we are, Very truly yours, DOURLEDAY PAGE & COMPANY, [illegible]Mr. John Muir, Martinez, California.
