[letterhead]24 August 1912Mr John MuirMartinez, California, U. S. A.Dear Sir,In receipt of your favour of the 25th of June & copies of your books "Mountains of California" & "Stickeen" for same, I thank you most heartly. I am very glad to here you have had a very safe & pleasant voyage home. I heartly congratulate you on the successful trip you have made through south & middle Africa.By todays mail I am sending to your address under separate cover, ten prints taken from five of the negative, as you will see by them that I have overexposed the plates; that is the cause of the fog. One of the negatives turned out useless, spoilt.In the middle of September I will go over the same ground again & have them all taken over from the same position. I have bought a new lens with a wider angle which, will give me a better panoramic view from the same positions.05259
