John Muir


[A. H. and Fay] Sellers


Martinez, Apr 3, 1903

Dear Mr & Mrs Sellers

we were all sorely disappointed when we got word that confounded business called you straight back to Chicago ere we had sight of you. Keith no doubt feels the same. I'm at work on an article on glaciers for an encyclopedia & when that is done I have to get ready for a long trip abroad with Prof. Sargent of Boston to study trees & mountains ice etc. I leave here for Boston May 18 just after the Presidents' short Yosemite trip & hope to get a glimpse of you as I pass through Chicago. Ever yours

John Muir
