John Muir





Dear Mr. Muir:

I observe that your National Parks is copyrighted by you, and not by the publisher. In connection with Edwin Markham's review I should like to run some extracts from the book, particularly from the chapter on the animals of Yosemite. Will you kindly permit me to print about 2500 [illegible]? The "Atlantic" has always been willing. I am sure it will not interfere with the sale



of the book, but rather attract attention to it and help a little toward creating public interest in it. I ordered from a bookshop to day a copy of Markham's latest book of verse, to be sent to you. You will probably receive it Monday or Tuesday. I feel instinctively that you will like "The M[illegible] [Memory?]" and the S[illegible] marches verse. Speaking of marches, while lately in New York I asked Sidney Louie's son, editor of Everybody's Magazine, why he didn't find and print something like his father's "Marches of Gly[illegible]". He said it was hardly possibly to find it, and that if he got it he wouldn't print it, as it was too good for readers of a cheap magazine. I suppose you are acquainted with Louie. I think his was a great soul

Sincerely Millard.
