Mr. John Muir:
My Dear Sir:
I was very much gratified to receive your volume on Our National Parks, etc. & I thank you most heartily for it. Many of the chapters I read and admired as they appeared in the Atlantic , the [field?] is your own, & I hope you have yet many things in store for your readers & [admirers.?] My own life has been
too exclusively devoted to other kinds of [contemplation?], and, consequently, I am driven to an out door life & a kinder climate. it seems probable that my life will henceforth be in California, & in Redlands. I wish I might have the pleasure of meeting you, & seeing some new things with you. Again [thanking?] you and assuring you that I shall read the volume with [profit?] as well as pleasure,
Very truly yours
[in margin: Pres Adams]
