R. U. JOHNSON,
C. C. BUEL,
Mr. John Muir,
My dear Muir,
Mrs. Johnson and I arrived last week from Paris, and I was glad to find on my desk a friendly word from you.
I am exceedingly sorry to hear of the death of Mrs. Muir's mother, and I beg that you will accept for yourself and her my sincerest condolences.
I am glad to see that your pen is at work on forestry questions. I wouldn't trust Cornelius N. Bliss on that subject, or any other, around the corner. He is one of the men most responsible for Tammany's victory in this city, and has degenerated into a thorough politician.
Please remember me very cordially to your wife, and tell her that my daughter is studying music in Paris with a young Pole, Stojowski, a friend of Paderewski's, and it is said, a man of much musical ability.
It would do me good to see you again. I hope it will not be long before you will set foot in New York.
R. U. Johnson
