John Muir



Jamaica Plain, Mass, August 12, 1898.

My dear Muir:

Glad to see your handwriting of August 1st. Let me know when to expect you, I shall be ready any time after the middle of September, but, as I have already written you, come as much earlier as you can.
I enclose a note from our friend Wood of San Bernadino. He may be a useful man if there is any more stirring up to be done of forest reservation matters. I wish you would return his letter to me sometime, as well as this one of General Abbot's which I got a few days ago and which I send to let you see that he is sound on other subjects besides forest preservation.
I have at last finished up Abies and all the conifers, and Volume xii. is getting through the press now pretty rapidly.

Faithfully yours,


John Muir, Esq.

Martinez, Cala.
