Dear Mr. Muir:

I was greatly pleased the other day to receive your charming book "The Mountains of California". I am only slightly acquainted with that beautiful state and shall enjoy reading of its varied and wonderful scenes and the fascinating animal life within its borders, — all the more, too, through the element of personality that the book now possesses for me as a gift from yourself. Two summers ago I camped in the San Bernardino Mts and for a short while enjoyed the company of Mr. Lukens of Pasadena, who, like myself, was engaged at that time in making some special investigations for the Bureau of Forestry. Since then I have wished



very often to be back and see other parts of the state. I trust the day may come when my wish shall be realized. I want to thank you for your kind encouragement to try another and a larger book than the little one I sent you and again for your thoughtfulness in having sent me a copy of your first volume. Please accept my sincerest wishes for your continued welfare and believe me

Faithfully yours,

G. Fred Schwarz.

Bureau of Forestry,

U.S. Dep't of Agriculture.
