1604, Taylor St.,
April 6 - 1902
Dear John Muir,
I do not know when you sent me your book "Our National Parks". the date on the fly-leaf is December, but I only received it last week, when my newspaper went to the Club for unforwarded mail. I myself have not been there for very, very long, but hope to
make at least a beginning of duties this week, weather and the fates permitting. I cannot tell you how precious I hold your work, and how much I thank you for this copy of your last. No other pen can ever give to God's woods and mountains the magic touch of yours. Do you never go to any of your old friends? One of them would be very glad to see you
in her little home upon the hilltops when you come to the windy city. Maybe dear William Keith would come with you. With best wishes to all your home circle,
Your auld lang syne friend,
1902 Apr 6
