Mr. John Muir,
Dear Mr. Muir:-
Since I returned from the Coast I have been very busily engaged in routine work, and until now have had no opportunity to make up for your daughter, Miss Helen, the print which I promised to send her. I have pleasure in forwarding it to her in your care, and hope it will arrive duly, and trust she may enjoy it. I have put in with the print one I just lately made of a hickory tree, which, being a photograph (and a rather good one at that) of a tree, I have thought you might enjoy having. I find also I have a good, print taken from near Rainbow Spring, on Mount Lowe, looking down the mountain, which it occurred to me you might enjoy having, inasmuch as it. is a quite typical illustration of the mountains of Southern California. This I have put in the package, and two copies of one of the negatives I made of yourself in your library. I confess these portraits are not very good, but perhaps they will interest you, as they are, I believe, unlike anything you have so far. Should you care for them, I would gladly send you some more prints of this portrait. Would you also greatly oblige me by giving Mrs. Muir the little landscape with mountains and river included in the package, together with my kind wishes.
I have the most vivid recollection of the profitable and pleasant Sunday which I spent at your home in April, and also of the joyful little luncheon party participated in by yourself, Keith, Willis Polk and myself on the Monday following. I trust you will accept my kind regards, and I remain
Very cordially yours
Dict. S.L.W.[in margin: Misc - Johnson Osborn Sargent [illegible]]
