Martinez, CaliforniaJanuary 14, 1908.Mr William Kent.Kentfield,California;-Dear Mr Kent:I send you my warmest thanks for your noble gift to the Government of Redwood Canon [diacritic] with its magnificent groves of Sequoia to be preserved forever in all their glorious primeval beauty & grandeur. This is the finest forest & park thing done in California in many a day, & how it shines amid the mean commercialism & apathy so [destructively?] prevalent these days. You have made yourself immortal like your Sequoias, & all the best [people?] of the world will call you blessedMay we meet ere long, but whether I am to see you or not I am ever,Faithfully your friendJohn Muir
