John Muir


[David Starr] Jordan


Martinez, April 10 / 02

Dear President Jordan,

I have sent my own subscription to The American Naturalist but fear it will be hard to find others hereabouts now that all the country is flooded with cheap picturebooks & magazines. Even the more intelligent readers are fast losing taste for anything like serious reading.

With best wishes,

Faithfully Yours

John Muir
