A[nna] B[lanche] McGill
Mr. John Muir,
My dear Sir,
In a recently written essay on American nature-lovers, it has been my privilege and pleasure to refer to your "Mountains of California" and the Altlantic Monthly essays. The editor who holds my article wants some illustrations - which fact I mentioned to Mr. Robert Underwood Johnson (who presented
me with your book); he said he would write you and ask if you could track down for me any photographs of yourself, of your glorious country - of flower-meadows and glacier-flanked mountains. If there is any photograph dealer in your vicinity who has such reproductions as would serve for illustrations, may I ask you for his name and whereabouts? Trusting not to be making an intrusive or burdensome request
Anna Blanche McGill.
