John Muir



Aug 7/97

Dear Dr Muir:

My father sent the enclosed manuscript to me to have it copied & sent to you. He says you have often asked him to write on this subject, but that he has never had a chance until now to do so. My father intends to send the article after you have kindly revised it to Harper's Weekly unless you advise otherwise. Will you please read it over and make what corrections you think


advisable & return the article to me.
The last word we heard from my father was from Astoria from whence they go straight by the only passage to Dysa over the Chilcoot. My father intends going only as far as Juneau & expects to be home in about 3 weeks.
With kind regards to Mrs Muir and your daughters

I am yours truly

Frederic E. Magee.
