My dear Mr Muir
I must write you, that we have as much enjoyed the article on Yellowstone, in the April Atlantic - my dear friend, in this you have out done yourself.
I got the magazine as soon as I was out, and read it aloud to my wife - we both want to thank you so much.
We are "well up" in description of the Reservation, and so were better able to appreciate what you said - my wife is here, and says, "I concur."
She says, ask Mr Muir when he can comedown and stay overnight - and bring Mrs. Muir or if she cannot come, one of the [girls?]
