EDITORIAL ROOMSHOUGHTON MIFFLIN COMPANY4 PARK 8TREET • BOSTONApril 3rd, 1914.Dear Mr. Muir,You will recall that in August 1913 we exchanged letters in regard to the publication of the next volume of your Autobiography, and that on September 1st you wrote us that you hoped to be able to take it up inl014. 1914 is now well along, and we are shaping our plans for the fall books. We hope very much that we may count upon the second volume of the autobiography for publication at that time. For that purpose, we ought to have the material, or s[illegible]e of it, in hand in the course of the next four or five weeks, although we shall not need the entire manuscript until, say, the fourth of July.The story of your boyhood and youth has, we think, been a decided success, and it is still selling steadily in volume . We hope that the next volume will be equally successful. May we not count on it for the fall!Faithfully yours,[illegible]John Muir,Esq.FG/T05733
