poor sufferer from consumption. There are some things in the book which I do not fully agree with, such as remaining in wet clothes, &c., but an enthusiast in very likely to be overloaded in some of his views, and these the wise man will discount a little.
With best wishes for yourself and your good work,

I am,

Yours very truly,

Dear Mr Muir:-

Your contributions to the Atlantic Monthly on the Wild Parks of the West have given me a great deal of pleasure, and I feel I am much indebted to you, as well as almost the community in general; and also for the efforts you have made in preserving the great Sequoia trees.
In page 133 of your book you speak of the advantage of camping in the woods, and as I have taken a good deal of interest in the subject of the open air treatment of consumption, I am sending you a book on the "Nordrach Treatment", which I think wil1 interest you, and you might find a case where you could lend it, and do good to some



Pittsburgh, Penn.
