Editor of the "Century"
I beg to thank you for that article in your last issue. "The Grand Canon of the Colorado In the past twenty years I have not seen such a thrilling and ent[illegible] piece of
writing. The description is so accurate and real, and withal so graphically and poetically done. What could be better than his description of the different kinds of cactus - a few heavy strokes for each and they live to the eye - And again his description
of the mornings and evenings in the dry desert air: and his clouds and colors in the canon, How perfect and poetic, his prosy, and how thrilling, its reading, to one who has seen it. In the language of desert thrist, - give us more.
