Mr. John Muir,
My dear Muir:-
Will you tell me what is the basis of this item from the New York "Times"?
By the way, are there photographs of that new big tree which you have found? and if we should want two or three pages of type about the big trees and photographs of the three largest, could you furnish them? Mr. Gilder is away and I don't know whether he could make room for such an article but I would like to know if we wanted it whether you would be willing to prepare it[illegible].
Can it be that the new Yosemite is the one you mean to describe in your article on the Kern River region?
