John Muir



I could get 3 or 4 large and very fine pictures of California Mountain scenery, I wish you would refer me to the parties. An article a little shorter, perhaps, than your recent paper in the Atlantic, would suit us.

Yours most truly

My Dear Sir:

I am most glad of your letter of the 17th. I was sorry to have missed you. For Country Life, which I am to edit, I want an article from you on the "Mountains of California", or something of that kind, al-

It will be dated January, 1902, and will be on sale in December. We should have the article Oct. 15. I want your best - one of your clear, ringing, soulful descriptions. If you know where


Cayuga Lake [N.Y.]
