John Muir



My dear Mr. Muir-

It was indeed a pleasure to see your kindly face depicted in the two pictures, of which I choose — both! They shall be always my treasures, as a delightful


reminder of a friend who has taught me much of the beauties of life, and of the pleasures & glories of nature - My wish for the present is that we may meet soon — for the future, that [illegible] without the meeting you will occasionally think of your [young?] friend & admirer,

Mary Sargent
