Barton O. [Aylesworth]
DENVER, COLO. January 12th, 1898.
Mr. John Muir:
Before my return to the pulpit, I taught Modern Literature for a number of years. I cannot give it up entirely. In addition to lecture courses similar to the one outlined in the enclosed circular, I have a number of "groups" which meet regularly for a more personal study of authors, and a sympathetic study of their books.
Will you help me to find a discriminating sketch of your life? – autobiographical if possible.
I desire particularly: place and time of birth; early education; travel; works issued (with date); present place of residence, and the school of thought which has most influenced you.
Believe me sincerely yours,
1898 Jan 12
