John Muir



you are coming soon to the East Holm Lea is ever ready to welcome you, its inmates eager to see you [illegible]ce were within their [gates?]. With renewed thanks & appreciation, believe me to be dear Mr. Muir,

[1] 7-26-


My dear Mr. Muir-

It was indeed good to receive your book, and [know?] that you had not altogether forgotten your Brookline friend & admirer. I shall



take the book to the Coast of Maine, & there revel in its contents, and keep it ever among my chief treasures, the more so because it bears your name with mine in its pages. But I am going to be very [illegible]eedy, & seemingly ungrateful, by reminding you that you promised me your photograph, and I have always so wanted it — still am so anxious for it that I venture to plead my cause! I do hope that



Sincerely & gratefully yrs.

Mary Sargent-
