Dear Mr. Muir

I send you today a copy of the Nati[illegible] containing my review of your 'National Parks'. Though a very busy man, I read every word of it and wished there was more; but I told my wife that if I read another of your books I should carry her off & build a hut in the Sierra Nevada! She is not quite ready yet for that, but when I am too old for jou[illegible]istic [illegible] I shall certainly do something of the sort.

Yours Sincerely

H T Finck
