John Muir, Esq.,
Dear Mr. Muir:
Mr. C. R. Miller, editor-in-chief of the New York Times, requests that we should send him from time to time advance copies of future papers or addresses by persons about whose work, In our judgment, the public should be Informed.
He desires this material for examination for possible treatmentin the news and editorial columns of the Times, or for its special reference files. He suggests that if copies or proof-sheets cannot conveniently be sent in advance he would be glad to receive them after initial publication.
We are writing to a few of our authors whose work and investigationswe believe would be of Interest to Mr. Miller, conveying to them his request. If the idea commends itself to you will you not take the matter up with Mr. Miller when occasion offers?
Yours very truly,
Houghton Mifflin Company
