1067 Broadway,San Francisco, Aug. 19 '10.Dear John Muir:The Books all came, but I have been too sick to write acknowledgments. I thank you for them more than I can say. To reread the familiar words was next to seeing you in person.Of course I would not for worlds add an atom to your toil and care. My desire to have you give to the heathen some little of your great riches was my motive in asking you to talk a wee bit to us. We are such an ignorant lot, and, as a rule, so indifferent to the greatness and beauty and wonder of the world God has given us to live in.My love and blessing to you always, John.INA COOLBRITHI send this to Martinez, because I have not your Los Angeles address. Los Angeles address.
