Dr. A. Woeikov,
St. Petersburg, Russia.

My Dear Sir:-

My friend, Prof. John Muir, L. L. D. contemplates visiting Russia, and particularly Siberia, to study the highly interesting geological features. I therefore present him to you, and ask that you advise him regarding routes of travel and notable points of interest. He bears to you my kind regards and grateful memories of your courtesies during the St. Petersburg session of the International Geological Congress.

Very Respectfully,




San Francisco
