[2]very much. The boys have all been reading and enjoying it also.I am glad to know that the autobiography is progressing. It will be a fine thing when finished. The animal stories would as you suggest, make a good volume themselves, and I think it a good plan. But, if that is your decision, leave them until after the "auto" is published! We are[1][letterhead]January 28/10My dear Mr. Muir:-I was very, very glad to hear from you again, and want to thank you, both for writing me, as well as for "Stickeen". I have had the pleasure of reading that little story more than once. It is a beautifully told tale - but not as good as when you tell it with your own lips! Thank you04692

[3]wanting your own story while there is time! So many people speak of it, and wonder when it will come! It seems strange without Mr. Harriman. He was so full of life and energy, and his life and [illegible]quent activities seemed to be so threaded in and through everything, that we cannot but miss him. The world goes on - but that is because[4]it cannot help itself! The lives of such men go on too!I hope I may someday, have a chance to spend some hours (& possibly, days) with you again. You helped me see things about and around me to which I had been blind before - and so blessed my life!Accept, I beg you, my hearts' warmest greetings and Believe me,Ever, Sincerely yours,Thomas Price
