[Theodore P.] Lukens


Praising my tree planting

Martinez, June 21,/01

[in margin: Can you give me Superintendant Newhall's address?]

My dear Mr Lukens

I'm glad to see by the newspaper you sent me that a host of young trees are rising up on the mountains to call you blessed. You have made a good beginning in tree-planting & the effort will be farreaching. I have to go to the Tuolumne Meadows with the Sierra Club excursion next month, & this recalls the pleasant trip with you. I should be very glad to have you with us, but I suppose you will be busy with the reservation work. Remember me to Mrs Lukens, Mrs Jones & dear Lottie.

Ever yours truly

John Muir
