John Muir Esq.
My dear Mr Muir
1 send you a check for $82.50, designed to be in payment for the article you were so good as to give us on Linnaeus. This is at the rate per thousand words which we have paid the eastern writers, and I hope it will be satisfactory to you.
I have had the pleasure of spreading your mountaineering book abroad to some extent, and it has given the greatest pleasure to my friends, some of whom are now reading it at their winter firesides with delight.
I hope you will let me see you if you ever come east again.
Allow me once more to express my gratification and pleasure at the good word you said for Linnaeus, and
Yours very sincerely
1897 Dec 24
