san Francisco Sept 8th, 99.
Professor John Muir,
My Dear Professor;
I received your book and many thanks to you. I can see your many characteristics throughout the work, and every page reminds me of the pleasant hours spent together during our voyage to Alaska. To say the least it is a noble and interesting work, and we are all delighted with it. I forward you a copy of the H.A.E. poems. I would have send them before but I was called to Portland unexpectedly, to take command of S.S. "Columbia". Should you contemplate a trip to Portland, I would be very pleased to have you come on the "Columbia", and I promise you our morning coffee shall be the best.
Hoping we will be shipmates again in the near future and commemorate the
H.A.E. by sliding over a few glaciers Slivers I am
Yours very respectfully
1899 Sep 8
