John Muir


[John Muir]


[Robert Underwood] Johnson


[May 1, 1903]

Dear Mr Johnson:

I'm glad you're home & that you had a good rich time
I'll take your letter with me on the Yosemite trip & hopefully deliver your message, suggestions etc.
I leave New York May 29th on the Gaelic, & hope to get at least a glimpse of you as I sail as I sail. Remember me to all your family & present my sincere congratulations to Mr Buel on his marriage.

Faithfully yrs

I think I told you that I am going with Sargent across


Asia by the Russian road, through Siberia & Manchuria to Peking, thence to Japan Jar[illegible] & Manilla - to look at trees rocks etc.
I did not forget Mrs Tully's book Prairie girl, It is a charming picture of child life in the old West. But after reading Julian Hawthorne's review I thought anything I could say might do less good than harm.
