My dear Muir:
I hope you can give me a line about Mrs.. Muir's illness, which I hope is a thing of the past. Please remember me very cordially to her and tell her I much appreciated her liking my note about you in the Outlook.
I am glad to hear you have so much literary work in contemplation. You have done so much exploratory work that you ought now to buckle down to making record of it so the world shall have the benefit of what you have done. That and not more exploration I take to be your immediate duty. Lord! how easy it is to tell other people what their duties are.
Mr. John Muir.03594
