(Apr. 1913)

Mr. John Muir,

Martinez, Calif.

Permit me to say to you that the "Story of my Boyhood and Youth" has found a great place in our house and in our hearts.
We gave it to our son Paul, who has entered the university. The book is full of inspiration and courage and the atmosphere


of the early Wisconsin days. We are Wisconsin people and are familiar with the scenes of the book. I'm glad you wrote this book. I'm prouder than ever of the U.W.
Pardon me if this letter is an intrusion on your time.

Very truly

Rose W. Taylor
