218San Jose, Cal.,May 1, 1895Dear Mr. Muir,I find genuine pleasure in your book, which you so kindly sent me. I had not yet seen it, though I had been quick to notice its coming from the press.It makes one feel that the Douglas Squirrel, the Water-Ouzel, the wild sheep, and all the other living things you describe, are his very friends as well as yours.The breath of the wild, free mountains is in it,01980
