[letterhead]Dear Miss Bell,I saw Prof Bradley and worked him for all I could get. It will be impossible for him to write the leading article--he says that Miss Graydon of whom I spoke to you--should do that--but he promised to give us, in time for the December number, a complete bibliographical account of Mr. Muir, with appreciative comment. I think we are lucky in getting this, (which will in itself be of real literary06183[letterhead]literary value) as Prof Bradley is very busy this term. I am pretty sure that we can get Miss Graydon to write; these two, together with your contribution, ought to be a substantial basis upon which to build our hopesHow do you think the announcement ought to be made in the Prospectus. I thought of putting something like thisMuir NumberThe name of John Muir has long been prominently identified with California, its forests & mountains. The magazine will issue a special illustrated Muir number containing appreciative sketches of the naturalist's life & work06183
