Martinez, Cal. Jan 6, 1910—Dear Mr Burbank:Many thanks for check & the interest you take in saving our National parks. I have long wanted to know you. Strange how people so near are so long kept apart. For many years I have been one of your most ardent admirers & when I have thought of visiting I have always imagined you overwhelmed & inaccessible in a crowd.I have seen mean envious things in the press- especially since Carn[illegible]ge help had been given. But of course you will not mind them. Led by your genius you will plod doggedly industriously on your flowery fruitful Godful way with the sincere admiration of every lover of Nature & mankind.With all good wishes & warm regardsI am every faithfully yoursJohn Muir
