Mr. John Muir,
My Dear Sir:
You may remember that a year or more ago, in response to a request of mine, you raised the hope that 1 might be favored with an article from you on some topic in the line of your special study or research.This is simply to say that 1 shall be very glad if you will send me such an article now at your early convenience.
As I wrote before, the material sent out by me appears only in high-class newspapers, such as the "Boston Transcript", and the "New York Tribune", and I have among my regular contributors such men as Dr. Edward Everett Hale, Prof. Simon Newcomb, Prof. N. S. Shaler President Hyde of Bowdoin College. As to a topic, I have only to suggest that you take something in the line of your investigations in Alaska, or among the forests of the Pacific slope. For an article of noteless than fifteen hundred words I shall be willing to pay $40.
