W[illiam] B[elmont] Parker
January 9, 1902.
Dear Mr. Muir,
I found your letter of December 23rd awaiting me on my return from a visit West, and have only waited until I could get a report on the sales of the National Parks book. I find there were sold up to the end of the year about 1800 copies, which is a very good start, and may, I hope, lead to results sufficiently generous to make you want to finish the other books that you have in mind, especially the Yosemite book, and later the autobiography, in which I have become peculiarly interested.
Thank you very heartily for your good wishes for Christmas and the New Year, and if it is not too late, I hope you will take
my good wishes for the New Year in return.
Mr. John Muir.
1902 Jan 9
