John Muir

Dear Mr. Muir

I send you by mail [today?] a copy of my book and regret that it has not reached you before.

One of these [dam?] Democratic officials here casually asked me the other day if I "knew any- thing about Alaska." I shall be anxious to know what your opinion may be on that project.

With regards to Mrs. Muir, her mother and the little one. I am Very Sincerely L. [R.?] Scidmore


…Washington, [D.C.]
