3ly, The Pacific Motor Boat, and Outdoor Life. He is cruising around there now, hunting polar bears and walrus, and filling orders from museums for arctic birds. I will try to place other orders this winter and help him fill them, besides making a study of the insect life of the Arctic. As the hour of my deliverance from The Grind approaches I am getting very impatient to be free.If I go east this winter I shall certainly try to make you a visit. I have a brother in Los Angeles, Walter L. Young, an oil man and a rampant socialist, but a good fellow for all that. I shall go to see him.I shall keep in communication with you, and if the publishers want more Days with John Muir I shall send them to you first for criticism, and revision if needed.Please let me hear from you again. You don't know what pleasure the resumption of our long intermitted corresponence has afforded me. I acknowledge the fault of the hiatus was mine.Will you kindly tell me who was the publisher of the account of the Harriman Expedition, in what shape it was brought out and the price. I must have it.With kindest regards from Mrs. Young and myself,As ever, your Friend,[illegible]P. S. Inglancing over this letter I find that I have failed to express my thanks for your help. You know that I am grateful.S. H. Y.04794
