Mr. John Muir,
My Dear Sir:-
I write to ask if I may be favored with an article from you sometime during the coming year (1901) which I may send out for publication in the papers patronizing my agency. I would like an article of not less than 1500 words on some question or topic of the day coming within the lines of your special study or research. For an article of this kind, of the length indicated, I will pay $50.
I may add that articles sent out by me appear only in high class dailies and weeklies and not in any of the sensational sheets. Among my regular newspaper patrons are the Boston Transcript, the New York Evening Post and New York Tribune, the Philadelphia Record and the Chicago Record. Among those who have written for my agency during the present year are the Hon. James Bryce, M. P., General O. O. Howard, Dr. Theodore Cuyler, Prof. Edward S. Holden, President Charles F. Thwing and Dr. Carroll D. Wright, United States Labor Commissioner.
If I am favored with the promise of an article during 1901, I will give you ample notice of the time when MSS. will be needed.
Yours very truly,
L A Maynard
