John Muir




Jamaica Plain, Mass., November 26,1897.

My dear Muir:

Mr. Hunnewell, the old man who loves trees and whose letter I sent you the other day, has a grandson who is going to California and his grandfather has asked me to give him a note of introduction to you. I have done this with some compunction as I could not very well refuse. The idea, I fancy, was the grandfather's and not the grandson's who cares more for dogs, golf and tennis than he does for trees, and probably the letter will never be presented. If it is, do not curse me too much for having written it, and believe that I am

always faithfully yours,

C. S. Sargent

John Muir, Esq.
