[Mary V.] Worstell


[First draft of letter, in note-book]

Martinez, Mar. 2, '05.

Dear Miss Worstell:

I am sorry I can't send you the photo you want for your K[ern] R[iver] lecture; because it is copyrighted by Hugh S. Gibson of Los Angeles, but I think you will have no difficulty in obtaining one direct from Mr. G[ibson]. I have forgotten his address, but a letter sent care Chas. F. Lummis, Out West Co., Los Angeles, Cal. would reach him.

with best wishes and pleasant K[ern] R[iver] memories, I am,
[John Muir]

P.S. The tree I am standing by is not a pine, it is a libocedrus.


[Martinez, Calif.]
