John Muir


[A. H.] Sellers


Martinez, Dec 13. 1898

My dear Sellers,

I'm home & want to hear from you. I think I wrote you from Florida or thereabouts - during my long seasons ramble through the Eastern forests a grand trip which lacked only a visit to your happy home to be about perfect I saw Keith the other day & he told me he had a fine portrait of Mrs S - a new one that I have not. Can't I have a copy? White & Co of New York are getting up a 120 dollar book of biography (American) & they insisted on getting me in it & asked for a photo. I sent your as the best.
Do let me hear from you saying "All's well" if no more

Ever Yours Cordially

John Muir

Are you coming west this winter
