John Muir


[John Muir]


Lyman Abbott


(Copied from notebook marked "1905", letter 1)

I'm hard at work on the little article I promised you and hope to get it off my hands early next month. It has taken far more time than I expected. It is a description of a great winter flood in Yosemite. I don't think that any illustrations that could be furnished would do the article any good.

Faithfully yours,

[john Muir]
