John Muir


[Letter of J. H. Mellichamp to John Muir, March 1, 1889, continued]


man of pure French blood. This little book is really well done, it seems to me. You must pardon all of the things I've written. I fear they will keep you from answering again. Glad you liked the few slips of the Carrollton woods (pine-lands). My favourite is Elliott's "Podostigma pub" as humble as it looks.
