[A. H.] Sellers
Martinez March 8/02
My Dear Sellers,
When I saw your letter the other day I said "They are coming at last" But spring is here & I fear you are not to be seen this side the country this season. How kind of your to send so many photographs & the negative They came in good order. I'm distressed to think how often I have called on you for those pictures. Everybody I know keeps begging for them & all like yours the best. In many ways it is a weary burdensome thing to be known in books. Lately
some friends worried me into helplessness & made me sit for a bust What they can want with me in clay iron or brass I can't imagine. Setting here trying to write I often feel that I must escape to the wilderness once more. You have no idea how I'm set upon. The severe weather you have had this winter I hope is now past for the year & that you will all come through these & all other trials safely & yet see many happy days on both sides the continent. With hearty thanks I am ever sincerely yours John Muir
