My dear Mr Page,

I sent by mail today M.S. of ice article for the Harriman book. the receipt of which please acknowledge. & as it is short I hope you will read it, not for wandering words, & sentences out of plumb but for the ice of it. Coming as you do from the unglacial south it may "fill a long felt want". And before you settle down too hopelessly far in book business take a trip to our western Iceland. Go to Glacier Bay & Yakutat & Prince William's Sound & get some pure wildness into your inky life. Neglect not this glacial advise & glacial salvation this hot weather & believe me faithfully Yours

John Muir
