John Muir


August 30, 1907.

Dear Mr. Muir:

We take pleasure in enclosing the usual semi-annual statement, showing the sales of "Our National Parks" for the past six months, together with our check to "balance the account. When we last wrote to you, with regard to your book on the Yosemite and the work on Alaska, which you had then in hand, you spoke of the possibility that the Century Company would take advantage of a prior engagement with you for the former book; and we venture now to take this opportunity of renewing our expression of keen interest in either work.
With Kindest regards,

Yours very sincerely,


Mr. John Muir.
