My dear Mr. Muir:
I enclose the three letters. I trust I need not tell you, my dear sir, hom happy wallte days in the Yosemite I owed to you, and how greatly I appreciate them. I shall never forget our three camps; the first in the solemn temple of the giant sequoias; the next in the snow storm among the silver firs near the brink of the cliff: and the third on the floor of the Yosemite,in the open valley fronting the stupendous rocky mass of El Capitan,with the falls thundering in the distance on either hand.
Good luck go with you always.
John Muir, Esq.,
Care of Charles S. Sargent,
'Jamaica Plain, Mass.
May 19, 1903.
To Whom it May Concern, and especially to all Diplomatic, Consular, Naval and Military Representatives of the United States abroad:
This will introduce Mr. John Muir and Mr. Charles S. Sargent, American men of science, to whom I personally desire that all possible courtesy be shown and every aid rendered during their sojourn abroad. Whatever may be done for them I shall regard as a favor to me.
1903 May 19
