R. U. JOHNSON,
C. C. BUEL,
My dear Muir:
Your note of January 27th, announcing that you have been to the Canon, takes away our breath. It gives us a great deal of satisfaction, however, and I take pleasure in sending herewith a check for $60. to reimburse you for the expense you have had in procuring this material. Now if, before the impressions wear off, you will get to work and give us the article --- it need not be over five or six thousand words--- you will put us further under obligation to you for your enterprise and your cooperation in this undertaking.
Mr. Parrish has just sent us the first lot of his illustrations for the articles by Ray Stannard Baker on the Southwest and we are all delighted with their beauty. They are all of them in color. One, of the Grand Canon, we shall print in black and white, and possibly reproduce it in color with his other illustrations and your text later on. It is a splendid combination--- Muir and Parrish--- and we are proud of having effected it.
John Muir, Esq.
