L[oulu] P[erry] Osborn
John Muir [illegible]
Beginning, Set not thy foot on graves
Life is too short to waste
In critic peep or cynic bark,
Quarrel or reprimand:
'Twill soon be dark;
Up! mind thine own aim, and
God speed the Mark!
My dear Mr. Muir
We all want a visit from you - ! When may it be? As you say, continents nor Time, separate true friends. In the mean time
Thank you for the books, deeply. Also will you write out for me yr Milton quotation about Ocean, & the I remember. Up! it will soon be dark. Etc. & by whom is it. I am writing all my loved sayings in a book & these I associate with you - All send love - [illegible] always yr friend
