I am, Dear Mr Muir,
Yours very Sincerely

Dear Mr Muir,
I ought to have acknowledged long before this the receipt of your most charming book Our National Parks. You are partly to blame for the delay for I had to read every word carefully
before I could think of any letters to any one and then I began again at the beginning. You have given me a great pleasure. I now live in earnest hope of seeing something of the Yosemite or other of the Edens you describe.
I sent the other day my copy of Sir Joseph
Hookers Himalayan Journal. I know of another copy I can get sometime when convenient. But I thought you would like mine with Sir Joseph's writing within.
Have you done anything towards putting on record your impressions of your Old World travels?
Richmond, S. W.
1904 Oct 17
