as everywhere admire you & love you; you have all our hearts, and though we regret the end of your presidency is drawing nigh we are glad to know that in reality you will be in many ways our president as long as you liveIn particular I thank you for saving the Tamalpais Redwoods and doubt not you will also save our great Yosemite park.This greeting has been delayed by my daughter's illness, I have taken her to the Mohave desert where the dry healing air will, I fondly hope, bring back her natural Scottish wholeness & strength.I am ever my dear Presidentfaithfully yoursJohn MuirJanuary 1908.
