[1]5[illegible] North Henry AvButte, MontanaFebruary 7 1911Mr. John Muir,Los Angeles, CaliforniaMy dear Mr Muir:Your letter came as a delightful surprise to me and I wish you might know how deeply I appreciate your kind words concerning my book. "Trails Through Western Woods." The critics have been generous in their praise of this, my first volume and I am grateful to them all,04956[2]but no book review I have received is as gratifying to me as your letter.I did not know that you had visited Lake McDonald in your wanderings and I am glad if my descriptions have revivified your recollections of that most glorious country.As for me, I find myself strangely devoted to the lake and its surrounding mountains; so much so that the lure of it calls me
