Osborn [family]


Martinez, March 29, 1913

Dear Osborns, Many thanks for your immortal good wishes. Every Osborn word goes straight home to my heart making new love-rings like the season rings of trees. All my looks eastward are colored with blessed Osborn memories
I'm hard at work in my den, going nowhere writing Alaska notes of travel.
The boyhood book was published two weeks ago but the booksellers here are not supplied with copies. I ordered a copy to besent you direct from Houghton Mifflin Co. when I get a lot I'll autograph send you as many as you like.
My love to you to all who love you

Ever faithfully

John Muir
