Mr. John Muir,
My dear Sir:

I was very much gratified to receive your volume on Our National Parks, etc., and I thank you most heartily for it. Many of the chapters I read and admired as they appeared in the Atlantic. The field is your own. and I hope you have yet many things in store for your readers and admirers.
My own life has been too exclusively devoted to other kinds of contemplation, and consequently I am driven to an outdoor life and a kinder climate. It seems probable that my life will henceforth be in California, and in Redlands. I wish I might have the pleasure of meeting you and seeing some new things with you.
Again thanking you and assuring you that I shall read the volume with profit as well as pleasure, I am,

Very truly yours,
C. K. Adams
