Dear Mr Sampson:

Many thanks for the books you so kindly sent me, you are doing good merciful godly work & I fondly hope & pray that the present feeble glimmering light on the rights of our horizontal fellow-mortals may grow in brightness over all the world until man to man & man to beast shall brothers be & a' that.
Hoping to see you ere long I am faithfully yours

John Muir
