Prof. John Muir,

Martinez, Calif.

Dear Mr. Muir:

I have just received your book, "The Mountains of California", which came as a most happy surprise to me. It was sent to my address at the Bishop Museum in Honolulu but as I had returned to California the book was forwarded to me at Stanford University.
From the delightful way in which you remembered me I suspect you were pleased with the small panel of Koa wood I left in the steamer cabin for you! few things could have pleased me more than the beautiful inscribed copy of your splendid book.
Before leaving Honolulu I promised myself the treat of a talk with you. Will it be convenient for you if I should call for a few hours some day within a week or two? I want to talk to you about forestry.

Very truly.

Alvin Seale.
