Mr. John Muir,
Martinez, Cal.

Dear Mr. Muir:

I am sending you, by this mail a photograph of yourself. You will perhaps remember that it was taken on the trail leading up to Vernal Falls. I thank you very much for having allowed me to take your picture, especially where the surroundings were so appropriate. If you should desire other copies of the picture, I shall be very glad to furnish them to you, asking only your continued friendship in return.
I wish to express the pleasure I enjoyed from the conversation with you and the profit reaped from the companionship during the two weeks you were on the outing.

Sincerely yours,




Burlington, Iowa
