Herbarium of Harvard University,Botanic Garden, Cambridge, Mass.,July 14, 1876.Dear Mr. Muir:Yours of the 1st inst. and the Sequoia article is at hand. Probably I shall not go to Buffalo, but I will give the paper to the Secretary, Mr. Putnam.It is very interesting. You seem not to know that there is a new grove further north in Placer Co. Prof. Whitney told me of it. One thing I do not believe, and I do not think you prove, viz. that the Sequoias make the springs. Nor am I clear that you prove the trees were not existent beyond their present habitats, in former times. Are there not plenty of fallen Sequoias which made no ditches in falling?These are the two questionable points in your paper - me judice.Yours ever,A. Gray[Envelope addressed Mr. John Muir, 1419 Taylor Street, San Francisco, Cal.]
