R. W. GILDER, EDITOR.R.U. JOHNSON,ASSOCIATE EDITOR. C.C. BUEL,ASSISTANT EDITOR.My dear Muir:
In response to your note of the 1st of April I am sending to Dr. Benjamin, Care of Mrs. Bid-well,in Washington, copies of General Bidwell1s articles in The Century, with a note saying in what high regard I hole the memory of that sturdy pioneer;but as an outsider I fear I cannot say much of weight beyond this in favor of the General's claims to a place in statuary hall.
(2) I have written for the Outlook a little paper of impressions of John Muir, which I hope will not he disagreeable to you. I could have said a great deal more but my job was laid out for me.
(3) Our people are asking me every now and then about your Yo semite guide-book. How does it come on, and how about the other volumes which you ought to be writing-- as I say in my sketch of you—so as to complete the record of your life work?
Mr. John Muir.
J. M. 2.
P. S. I send you herewith a letter from Pinchot to me and another from him to Colby (the latter confidential).Please return these to me when you have read them. I also send a pamphlet about the forest reserves.I believe that these will answer your inquiries.
1905 May 1
