To my mind your writings constitute one of the dearest, sweetest influences of the literature of today and the reputation of them will, I am convinced, grow as the years roll by. I make no manner of doubt that your books will reach a permanent place, and become classics with those who love the face of Nature and delight to find their sympathy going out to her infinite beauties and lessons.Above all I joy in your constant reverent recognition of the presence of God in all things beautiful and kind.With my warmest regard and deepest respect.Believe me,Faithfully yours,Hudson StuckAr[illegible] of the Yukon.05776
