John Muir


[in margin: R N Johnson]



March 11th ’79.

Dear Sir:

Your form of the 27th is at hand & we will attend to your suggestions. We should be glad to use any additions to the “Forests” you may send us. We have showed your letter to Mr Drake & he wished us to say to you that he thinks you will be perfectly satisfied with the illustrations for your next articles. Some of them have been exactly reproduced & the others have been drawn by Mr. S[illegible]lie who has been over the ground & has photographs of many of the trees. We regret that some of the illustrations have not been entirely satisfactory

& we trust that you will like the future cuts better. We enclose that publishers check for $125.00 which is nearly up to our estimate of the articles. Should they over[illegible] as they probably will, we will send you a check for the balance, on publica- tion. We shall be glad to see the “Bee” article when it is ready

Yours very truly Editor Scribner
