John Muir


[Fay H.] Sellers


Martinez, Cal. Nov. 11, 1895

My dear Mrs Sellers,

The Century Co., a month or two ago, asked me for a photo of myself for use in a pamphlet & I sent them the one you made. How do you like the reproduction?
Are you coming hither this winter? I have not heard a note from either Mr. Sellers or Al. though flitting time is nigh. Keith is glorious now. He has just moved into fine new rooms with his whole flock of paintings & is fairly swelling with triumphant selfcontent, wealth & fame. Yet of course as old-man-boyish as ever. We have a little painting for you but you must see it ere it is sent to make sure you like it.
I am slowly pegging away at other books

My kindest regards to Mr Sellers & Al. Ever yours truly John Muir


Martinez [Calif]
