My dear Mr. Muir,

I have printed for you some of the photographs I took in King's River Canon [diacritic] - the selection is not a very diversified one, as I didn't go [even?] to Kearsarge Pass, let alone the Kern River. And this is the first time I have attempted to print in velox on a wide mat, so they are somewhat speckled. Such as they are, they go to you with my warm regards.



I have put with them a photograph which I took last summer in the Hetch Hetchy, which seems to me very pretty. The picture of the sequoias at the Giant Forest I have labelled "the great woods of Heaven" - a name given to the Big Trees by a dear wee Californian boy who has lived in England since he was a baby, but remains ardently loyal to California. Isn't it a pretty name? Will you remember me
