[Charles F.] Lummis


Martinez, Apr 9/01

My dear Lummis,

[in margin: Gen 3174]

One doz. copies of desk. " " " " Dog seated none jumping " " " " each of the others Half of them mounted, all unvarnished, on rough paper Your fight love reminds me of the good man in Job, 29th Cap. who among other benevolent things "broke the jaws of the wicked." and of Scotch schoolboys whose main ambition was to be "gude fichters." My own bloody nose & black-eye battles averaged about three or four a week.

Faithfully Yours

John Muir
