[Theodore P.] Lukens


thanks for photos of my taking

Martinez. Jan. 23. 1901

My dear Lukens,

The handsome tree photos arrived yesterday & I shall add them to the Grand Album. The Muricata and [one?] of the Sabines are handsome trees & they are very hardy. They should be oftener planted in parks & gardens. So also should the Common Nut-Pine (monophylla) which when young forms a handsome broad cone.

Ever Yours John Muir


Martinez [Calif.]
