John Muir


[Charles F.] Lummis


Dear Lummis

I'm glad to learn by your letter that your getting back your eyesight I never believed you had gone blind though you deserved a good warning eclipse for your insane night work.
As for the southwest society I realize its value but I was compelled to drop out of it & a good many others to get time to do some of my own work. Am now at work on Alaska

Faithfully yours

John Muir
