[letterhead]Nov 3d 1908My dear Mr MuirYour letter curls me all up. I am very far from being the nickel plated angel. I have tried to see clearly and talk straight, but have blundered & stubbed my toes and sprained my ankles and have acquired many enemies who should have been my friends. At the same time whenever I get the blues I remember the defiant, cussed, cheerful attitude of Kipling's soldier man in "For to Admire""I paid my price for finding outNor ever grudged the price I paid,But sat in Clink, without my boots,Admirin' 'ow the world was made."As for you with your gentle strong philosophy of life, with your appreciation and practice of "living and letting live" and with your real inspired knowledge of what is worth04314
