My dear Johnson -

I'm glad my unborn classic gives you so much pleasure. What your opinion may be after seeing it in the flesh might be another story Certainly something of the sort should be attempted if for no other reason to please you. I wish I could write an article or two for the Century. But the Atlantic. & other articles on hand drag miserably amid so many interruptions. From first to last the Calaveras Sequoias have taken over three weeks of my time. Now they seem safe. Thanks for the letters you sent on the subject. I'm afraid now that [Gilder's?] away you are working too hard. Magazine editors in general must now have very hard work amid so much wild competition Don't worry & don't overwork. Are you not worth more than many Maga's Ever Cordially Yours John Muir
