GLEASONILLUSTRATED LECTURES ON TRAVEL ANDNATURE STUDY83 PINCKNEY STREET.BOSTON.MASS.June 20, 1912.My dear Mr. Muir:I have just read John Burroughs review of your "Yosemite" in the Literary Digest of June 1. I hope you will go on with your glorious writing, describing the glorious scenes of California's glorious mountains and glorious parks and glorious forests and glorious water-falls, just as long and just as GLORIOUSLY as you can! And don't forget to tell us all about the "psalms and hymms and spiritual songs" which you hear in the aforesaid mountains, water-falls, etc. J. B., cold-blooded agnostic that he is, may not like it, but it appeals immensely to the people who read your books.We are just off on a three months' trip to the West, going first to the Canadian Rockies, then to Glacier Park, then to the Olympics and possibly home by way of Enos Mills" ranch in the shadow of Long's Peak, Colorado. How I wish you were going with us!Love from us both.Faithfully yours,[illegible]05213
