The lesson of your life all should reaad for in it there are some of the finest divinest things humanity has to show. Made into a book it could not fail to awaken and encourage many poor drowsy farspent wanderers on life's hard roads.To all who know you, Mr Willard you are a hero. I admire and love you and with warmest enthusiasm congratulate you on the victories you have won in these hard fought life-battles.May dear God guide and cheer and comfort you all the rest of your way home to the world of Light. So devoutly prays your friendJohn Muir
