Dear Mr. Muir:
You scare me by what you say in your letter of January 25th. Really, it would he absurd to publish a California Number of the Atlantic without a contribution from you in it. Of course I hare no light to urge you in the matter and I dare- say you are getting up as early in the morning and going to bed as late at night as is at all wise, but it does seem to us as If we must have that article. Pray give us every possible opportunity for it, and remember that there will be thousands of other people as much disappointed as we in case you do not write it.
John Muir, Esq.
