[First draft of letter, in note-book]

Martinez, Feb. 7, '05.

Dear Mr. Manson:

I thank you for an additional copy of the E[volution] of Climate. I have not yet had time to give it a oareful reading.
As to getting it into the popular magazines, all you have to do is to make it as interesting as possible and submit it to the editors. what they want they are very anxious to get. But on anything they don't want they are as Unpersuadable as glaciers. With best wishes, and hoping to see you ere long.

Faithfully yours,

[John Muir]
