My dear Muir:
I was in at Houghton & Mifflin's the other day and they showed me the advance sheets of your new book and your dedication of it to me. This took me completely by surprise and filled me with delight; in fact I do not know that anything which has happened to me has given me so much real pleasure as this evidence of your good feeling.
Alice arrived safely two or three days ago delighted with her trip to the west and with your kindness to her and her excursion up Mt. Tamalpais. [illegible] San Francisco she and her aunt visited the Yosemite where they staid several days and had a delightful time, then came home via Colorado. Altogether she had a splendid time and the trip has done her a great deal of good. Thank you cordially for your kindness to her.
I am up to my eyes in work in these days.
John Muir, Esq.
Jamaica Plain, Mass.
