My dear John Muir
This little letter from an eleven year old school girl written on her own impulse explains itself. If you feel like putting your autograph on the enclosed sheet I am quite sure it would be an incentive for her to continue her interest in John Muir and his Sierras. She does not know I am actually taking the liberty to mail this to you so she will not be disappointed if the autograph does not appear but I know she will be overjoyed if it does
Very sincerely and respectfully
J Wesley Little

Dear Mr Muir:
I have heard and read about you. And would like to know you. So would my father J. Wesley Little. He is an artist. He said he would rather take a walk with you than any other person in the world. I live in a beautiful little town that lies between three beautiful hills One looks like the work of a glacier Father found a rock there that was made up of a different kind of stone than what is around here and fossils. I would like to live in the Sierra Nevada mountains among the birds, animals, flowers and trees although I love my home.
