449June 28, 1911.Dear Mr. Muir,The little talk I had with you in our office a few weeks ago was brought to an end just as I was introducing the subject of Mr Enea Mills's work. I wanted to get your opinion of the accuracy and trustworthings of his observations. The few times that I have met him he has seemed to in personally a sincere and straightforward man and he has certainly done excellent work for the cause of forest preservation. I don't know whether you know him at all personally or not, but if, as I think, you have send his book, "Wild Life on the Rocking", and perhaps common his magazine articles, you can tell the just how you regard him as an observer and loves [illegible].I am led to make this inquiry on account of a some what severe criticism of an article which the wrote on a family of bluebirds for Suburban Life. Would you mind telling me in confidence what you think of him!Yours sincerelyJohn Muir, Esq.,850 Edith Avenue,New York, N. Y.
