Ed. C[entury] M[agazine] [Robert Underwood Johnson]
 [letterhead] Oct. 28.84
John Muir Esq Dear Mr. Muir: It has been along time since we have heard from you and we fear you may have abandoned literature altogether, very much we are sure to the loss of American readers.
Has the ink in your fountain entirely dried up, or would you have time to sit down on receipt of this letter and write for me an account of your experience and talks with Emerson, during his visit to the Yosemite? It would seem to be a pity that
anything relating to that great man and poet should fail of public recrod. Have the kindnes to let us hear from you on this subject, and believe me Very sincerely yours Ed. C M R.U.J.
1884 Oct 28
