EDITORIAL ROOMS HOUGHTON MIFFLIN COMPANY4 PARK STREET BOSTONJanuary 5, 1910.Dear Mr. Muir,It is a pleasure to receive, in an envelope bearing your corner-card, the very able pamphlet dealing with the matter of the Hetch-Hetchy Valley. That is a matter in which I have a very keen interest.By the way, isn't there a manuscript of yours dealing with a trip through the Yosemite many years ago that we had some correspondence about with a view to fall publication? This would be a particularly timely season for such a book, and it is one that we should heartily, welcome.Sincerely yours,[illegible]John Muir, Esq.04666
