My dear Mr Muir.

Will you kindly inform me as to the exact title of Clarence King's work on geology (as I understand it) relative to the geology of the Yosemite. If his book would not be helpful perhaps you will suggest something in it's stead, not too technical. Since coming to California

03006

your name has grown so familiar and your books have given so much pleasure to me and some friends of mine who are lovers of nature and the free untramelled life you enjoy. We are contemplating a journey to the Yosemite [to?] remain perhaps thru' the summer and wish to enjoy it in the most intelligent way, at least to get a clear idea of its beauty. Mr Lukens, whom we know, has spoken of you so often that I felt not the least fear in asking your assistance.

My friends have four new [illegible] and I have [illegible] Mountains of California. We would be delighted if you would suggest others you like.

With very great respect
