DEPARTMENT OFVERTEBRATE PALEONTOLOGYMy dear friend Muir:
I enclose copy of a review of a book by the greatest authority in Europe on the subject of mountain formation, namely,Penck of Vienna, which delighted me because of its confirmation of your theories, which, as you know, have been held by some geologists to be extreme.
We are all doing finely. Can you not come out and spend a week with us at Garrison this summer, any time before the 1st of August?
Mr. John Muir.
