John Muir


[Theodore P.] Lukens


the trees he speaks of are the big spruce 2.2 miles south of Port Townsend State of Wash. I remember a fallen tree at [Quillcene?] 425 feet in length, 350 ft to first limb, all were destroyed before he reached there

Martinez, Aug. 3/97

My dear Mr Lukens.

I thank you for the directions to the giant trees. It will go hard with me if I dont see them. I leave tomorrow or next day & look forward to a better trip than this which I hope to make with you ere long.

With best wishes to all

& love to Lottie

I am Yours truly

John Muir
