Berkeley, Cal. Dec. 10, 1897.

My dear Mr. Muir,

Those letters of yours--fugitive as you consider them--are well worthy of revision and collection in permanent form. I sincerely hope you will undertake the work soon, and that you will extend it to the collection of your magazine articles also. These last, of course, are in more or less permanent form already, and are to some degree accessible. But the freshness and charm of the others will be lost forever if you do not take them in hand. Professor Anderson of Stanford and I were talking over this very matter the other evening.
I trust the reprints which I sent have reached you safely. More are at your disposal if you want them. With sincere regards to Mrs. Muir and your daughers, I remain

Yours as ever

Cornelius B. Bradley.
