GEORGE W. PIERCE, COUNSELOR AT LAW, 13 PEMBERTON SQUARE. BOSTON, Oct 18th 1875John Muir Esq., Dear Sir, I want to thank you for the pleasure you have afforded me as one of the host who have read your article in the November Harj- per’s. It isn’t possible that you made all those excursions [underlined: a- lone]? I have seen glaciers in [illegible]- [illegible]land, and been on top of Mt. Blane; but never saw anything like what you describe, nor ever read so admirable a description. I had a moose hunt in the At- lantic for September, ’73; and have just returned from a thirty
days trip, with an Indian, up the Muskoka River to its head- waters, and down the [ Pebewaun?], an account of which some day I may have the pleasure of sending you. Respectfully yours, [illegible] W. [ Preice?] 00719.
