(Original letter in possession of Dr. Clara Barrus)Martinez, Nov. 9, 1909.Dear John Burroughs:It's always pure pleasure to hear from you. Send on your Yosemite article and I'll gladly read it and give anything I have that may seem worth while as suggestions.As to the origin of the Valley you do well to remain unconvinced since you have not studied it -- only glanced at it. Your impressions of its beauty and grandeur and worth to our dollar-seeking, dollar-sick nation should, I think, be your main object.All's well. Helen's married!Ever faithfully yours,John04629
