Sept [1?] 1912[letterhead]My dear Mr. Muir,I have nearly finished your First Summer in the Sierra, of which I had read only the beginning when you inscribed your name, and a kind word or two, in my copy last Sunday. How many pure, uplifting, genuine and lasting impressions you have given me in the turning of these pages!05268[letterhead]2Little as I have seen of the glorious region about Yosemite, yet it has been enough to enable me to catch the spirit of your words and to enjoy the scenes which you describe and the interesting experiences which you relate of that memorable summer of '69. And yet, to understand adequately and truly such a marvelous handiwork as God fashioned in the Yosemite, and the glorious setting in which it lies,05268
