BUEL,ASSISTANT EDITOR.Mr. John Muir,Martinez, Cal.My dear Muir:-I inclose herewith a letter from Mr. McClure of the MoClure Syndicate and Magazine. Prof. Sargent (with whom I have been talking over the matter to-day) and I both think that you could do a great deal of good by writing these articles, and we trust the terms will be satisfactory to you.In any event, please communicate direct with Mr. McClure as his offer is, of course, only a tentative one, and is dependent upon whether he can [illegible] handle the material of which I have [illegible]. I have urged the matter upon him as one of public interest and in the public service, and I think he is much interested in it.Prof. Sargent is well and things look bright at Washington for progress in forestry reform. Secretary Francis goes so far as to say that he only accepted the Secretaryship of the Interior upon the urging of his wife that he might be in a position to do something for forestry reform.[illegible]R. u.
