John Muir


January 15,1913.

Dear Mr. Muir:-

The copy of your little BIG book "E.H.Harriman" arrived last week. I had not expected you to send me one yourself,but hoped merely that you would write the publishers to consider me a librarian,to the end that I might obtain a copy.Needless,however,for me to say how much more I prize this book which has been handled by its author and which contains the inscription in his handwriting. I truly thank you.
I trust that you will receive the little calendar which I had my daughter,Romaine,paint and make up for you. It is nothing - but let it be, as it is,a small but visible token of the love and admiration in which you are held in our household.

With sincere regards,believe me,ever


Portland, Ore.
