[Charles Sprague] Sargent
[First draft of letter, in note-book #59] (53)
Shut yourself up at home or elsewhere and get your dry book done, or come out here and explore the redwoods. Like you, I'm bothered and made barren by a thousand small nothings. The grippe has gone, but articles go on forever, 1 had to write a Harrlman Expedition article, and I foolishly undertook an article on Yo[semite] for the Encyclopaedia Britannica Supplement which is not off my hands. Now I'm trying to finish this long string of Park articles to be ready for Mexico, etc,.with you in the fall.
Original letter dimensions unknown.
