Dear John Muir.
O, the handsome book! [&?] the beautiful picture of its author! A thousand thanks for these. I am delighted with
them and [am?] looking forward to the arrival of the other [illegible] most fondly. Im sending you the "Idyls" with much pleasure, but I haven't a photo to my name. When I get some I'll
not forget you. Yes: I belong [illegible] [there?] - but I starved [there?]. Sometimes I long to be [there?]. I need the climate now - I am breaking, and this Washington weather is fatal.
