W. B. PARKEREDITOR434 Lafayette St.,NEW YORKNew York, August 17, 1909Mr. John Muir,Martinez, Cal.Dear Mr. Muir:I am greatly pleased to see your handwriting again, and glad to hear that there is a chance of the Autobiography going forward this winter. If any parts of it get into such shape as to be suitable for magazine publication, please let me see them, and if it should be at any time proper for me to make a suggestion about the publication in book form, I should be grateful if you would let me do so. Perhaps you have seen enough of the editor's and publisher's type of mind to realize that I take an almost parental interest in this book. I should be glad to have the pleasure of arranging its christening and debut,Mr. Price, as you surmise, is in Europe, at Munich or Paris with Mr. Harriman, but if the papers are right, they will both be back here very soon.With all good wishes and friendly regards, I am.Yours sincerely,W.
