March 31, 1913.

Mr. John Muir,Martinez,Calif.

Dear Mr. Muir:

We have your letter in reply to ours in regard to the write-up by George Wharton James of you and your book in "Out West."
So far as we are concerned there are only two courses, -to send the book, or not to send it. We cannot of course control what Mr. James may write in a 16-page article. We assume from your letter, however, that you would prefer to have the book sent on the chance that he would write it up properly rather than not to sent it. So in the light of your letter we are sending a copy for review to Mr. James.
Hoping that this will meet with your approval, we are

Yours very truly,

Houghton Mifflin Company
