Dear Mrs Arnold.

I thank you for your kind letter & the beautiful flowers which came safely to hand a few days ago, telling kind appreciation of my little books
I have not written a word for the press lately so unquiet & care-filled has been the last years but have gained wonderful views of the world's oldest trees in the Petrified Forests of Arizona.
Again thanking you I am with best wishes faithfully yours

John Muir
