book form is causing you trouble in any way. In reading over the contract I think that to avoid all possible complications it would be better to leave it unsigned for six months or so or until the magazine that accepts it may have time to publish it before the appearance of the book. I expect to sail for South America August 15th but will probably return in six months or less. In the meantime I am trying to complete my Yosemite Book forthe Century Company.Faithfully yours,John MuirI'll let you know as soon as possible what arrangement I may make for magazine publication. Also I'll try to get more illustrations.J. M.
