3One other item: I have been reading "The Spell of the Rockies" and was delighted with the many touches of Muir in the book. Mills and I have become friendly through correspondence. The Mountaineers have illustrated lectures on the third Friday of each month. At one of those meetings this winter I desire to give such a lecture on "Muir and Mills, American Mountaineers." I can have pictures made of and from your books but I also would like a portrait of you and some of the snap-shots made of you in the woods and mountains. I do not wish to put you to any expense for such pictures. If you will kindly let know know who has the negatives I will deal with the parties.Our Club has between 400 and 500 members and I want everyone of them to know and love you as I do.Yours faithfullyEdmond S.
