Mr. Olaf Ellison,
101 Adams Express Bldg.,
Chicago, Il1.

My dear sir:-

I have your favor of yesterday in regard to the article on John Muir which you kindly submitted for SELF CULTURE.
I have it entered to appear in the March number of the magazine, and already have the manuscript prepared for press, and a half-tone made of the Muir portrait to embellish the article.
I hope you will enjoy your visit to the Pacific Coast on the mission on which you are about to set out. Pray make my compliments to Mr. Muir when you meet.

Very sincerely yours,
G. Mercer Adams, Editor.
