Ed. S[cribner's] M[onthly] [Robert Underwood Johnson]
[letterhead: Editorial Rooms of Scribner’s Monthly, 743 Broadway, New York.] Apl. 24. 1878
Mr John Muir, Dear Sir; We have read your “Douglass Squirrel” and have not been surprised to find it a desirable paper. We have marked it [underlined: accepted] and will pass it over to our Art Editor, Mr. Drake, for illustration. Your Lake sketch has just come to hand and will receive early attention. Condense your
Farm Life observations some time (when you have taken the subject to heart) and let us see the result. Mrs Foote is now in the East but her familiarity with California [ scenery?] would enable her to make charming pictures out of the [illegible]dest sketches. It is not necessary to repeat that we hold your work in high regard. You know that we are Sincerely yours, Ed. [ S.M.?]
