John Muir


2013 Kalorama Road N. W. Washington D.C.9 January 1910.My dear Mr Muir,It was a great pleasure to receive your circular about the Hetch-Hetchy Valley, and thus to know that you are well and still busy in your good work. I often think of our trip together through your mountain regions on the Pacific Coast, and wish that fate might bring us together again. Last summer I dined with Prof Sargent at his home, and met Brewer at New Haven; both were well, as I am myself. Hague I have not seen for several months, and Pinchot not for years. He is having a lively fight recently, and I hardly think he is getting the best of it. I wish we were near enough to meet often, but you may be sure that all the good wishes of the season are coming to you fromYour old friend,[illegible]I am sending by same mall a pamphlet which touches a little on forests.04676
