Oyster Bay, N.Y.
August 18, 1905.
My dear Mr, Muir:
I do not like to intrude upon your grief, but I wish you to know how deeply I sympathize with you. There is nothing that I can say that will be of any comfort. Get out among the mountains and the trees, friend, as soon as you can. They will do more for you than either man or woman could.
Mr. John Muir,
Oyster Bay, N. Y.
