[1][letterhead]Dec 8, 94John Muir EsqDear SirWhen Mr. Garrison, a few weeks ago, gave me your new book on the Mountains of California to review for the Nation and Evening Post, my eyes actually filled with tears as I read the chapter headings--so delightful were the memories & the expectations of literary delight called up by them. I enclose my imperfect review, which, however, will help to show you that I am almost as great a Sierra enthusiast as you are, although I have been only once at Tahoe & twice at the Yosemite, my experiences being recorded in "The Pacific Coast Scenic Tour," which you may have seen possibly.01890
