[Theodore P.] Lukens
as to Mrs Carr
Thanking me heartily for a lot of Photos
Martinez, Nov. 13, 1901. -
commending my forestry work strongly on margin of this letter
My dear Lukens.
I heartily thank you for the generous lot of fine photographs, they are beautiful & also interesting as tree & forest studies. I have not yet heard a word about Mrs Carr since she went to live with Dr Carr's brother near Santa Paula Please let me know how she is. The letters & papers I want are those I wrote her during a long correspondence begun about 1865 after leaving the State University of Wisconsin. She repeatedly promised to collect & send them to me, but I suppose on account of failing memory this has not been done. Many thanks for your offer to secure them.
My new book is just out, Ill send copies to you & Mrs Jones as soon as they arrive. I'm at work on another but hope to see you before it is finished With love to all your family
I am cordially Yours John Muir
[in margin: Your forest work is admirable & must soon gain wider & better recognition.]
