Dear Mr Muir

I have a good chance to give your "Adventure with a Dog and a Glacier" a go of a million, or more very likely. It is to enrich a better picture than the above of His Master's Voice.
If agreeable to you, it will be published in small paper-book form, well printed on good paper, with His Master’s Voice, on the cover with title, your name on the title-page of course.
I say it will be publlshed---I am saying too much. The Manager hasn’t seen it yet. I mean I shall advise it, with your consent. I imagine it may be immensely useful to you. It will be handsomely done, if at all. The object, of course, is to sell Talking Machines.


[illegible]Martinez, California, apr 6, 1902.
