[2]Your "Mountains of California" was the work that most impressed me. About five years ago, after my third trip to Mount Tahoma, I was reading up the mountain literature in Tacoma and Seattle. This book was so true and real and intimate in its portrayal of the southern mountains, that it impressed me more than any or all of the rest and I returned to it again and again. Then the Seattle "Mountaineer" put me on track of "Stickeen". This too, was a delight to me. Since then I have read your articles on Yosemite, your b[illegible] in the Atlantic — also the book on the same subject. In these articles you have done the coast states a most notable service.
