John Muir EsqMy Dear SirYour valuable letter of June 20th was received by me at the Sea-side. I heartily thank you for your information. I think however that your list of articles is not quite complete. as I remember one upon the “Water-Ouzel” of the Yosemite. This Article or topic may have been incorporated in another article fearing a different title How this may be I do not know. In your Remarks upon the “Water Ouzel” I made your acquaintance, & when one year ago the past April I was thinking “Water-Ouzel” the Entire time. I have written [Cannany?] & Son for the Overland & given my bookseller an order for Harpers & Scribner’s.01755[letterhead] Louisville, Ky. ……………………………………..18I thank you very much for your good wishes, but shall hope for your company, when we start for the Sierra.
