John Muir



December 1st. 1901

My Dear Mr. Muir,

Returning from a long Sojourn in New England, among native s[cenes?]. With brothers & sisters, I find a copy of the Atlantic Monthly - kindly sent by you. I have read you contribution to that number with the interest which attaches to all others that I see. Thanks for your thoughtful kindness. I wish I could pay "in kind", but I have written little that you would care to read. I take pleasure however, in extending knowledge of yourself & of your published book on the "Mountains of California" among my friends in Maine & Massachusetts from Portland to Cape Cod.

With heartiest good will,

Your friend

J.C. Pickard
