Mr John Muir

Dear Sir

I wish to thank you for the pleasure I have received from perusal of your book about "Our National Parks". I had read some of the articles as they came out in the "Atlantic", and was glad to see them published so handsomely in book form. I have lately had from our city library the two beautiful volumes about the Harriman expedition to Alaska, and have read them with much interest.


[in margin: Roman A. Crane 333

I place Mr Burroughs and yourself with Henry D. Thoreau as my favorite authors.

Respectfully yours

Roman A. Crane


Springfield, Mass.
