Benj[amin] Ide Wheeler
Berkeley, April 25, 1903.
My dear Mr. Muir: -
I should be very glad if you would tell me what camp outfit, supplies, and stock you consider needful for your expedition with the President. The Washburn Brothers have offered the services of two mountaineers, Leonard and Leidig, whom they describe as the very best men of whom they know for camp helpers. You could take along one or both, or leave them both behind, or send them on in advance to make camp, just as you would prefer. I wish very much that you might find it possible to meet my Secretary, Mr. Henderson, in San Francisco some day and to go with him to see Mr. A. S. Mann, of the Southern Pacific Company, the San Francisco representative of the Washburn Brothers, in order that all needful preparations might be consummated.
Very sincerely yours,
Mr. John Muir,
1903 Apr 25
