My dear Muir:
I notice that Professor George Davidson and a Mr. Manson have published two papers on the forestry of California and the distribution of rainfall. Can't you obtain copies of these for our library?
What are you about and are you coming east to start out September 15th to hunt for Crataegus with Canby and me? I am very busy this summer but really do nothing except grow old and the sight of yen would do more to rejuvinate me than anything I can think of. The sight of your photograph with Burroughs's in The Century made me really quite homesick.
Any news about the Redwood Reservation? Really we ought to do something about this.
With kind regards to your family,
John Muir, Esq.,
Jamaica Plain, Mass.
