Copy.Office of The Atlantic Monthly, 4 Park St. Boston,July 30, 1910.Dear Mr. Young:-We ask your pardon most sincerely for having kept this most interesting sketch such an unconscionable time. Our excuse is that in the meantime we happen to have been considering a series of articles by Mr. Muir himself, and having arranged to publish them during the early part of next year, we hoped to find space for this introductory paper of yours which would bring Mr. Muir on the stage in the happiest manner possible. To our regret, we find we shall not have sufficient space at our disposal to do this, and so very reluctantly we are returning you the interesting narrative.It seems unnecessary to send this story, which so many magazines would be glad to use, all the way back to Alaska, but in the absence of directions, we do not forward it to the Century Magazine, as we should feel strongly inclined to do.Faithfully yours,The Editors.S. Hall Young, Esq.,Cordova,Alaska.04834
