John Muir


160 Furby St. Feb. 3/10[illegible]My dear Mr Muir:Thank you warmly for the little book which arrived to-day, & which has the added value of your kind autograph. And thank you also for your letter. "Strikeen" is, in my humble judgment, a rare piece of prose, vital with the vitality of all immortal literature. Why did not the publishers do it up in a richer dress? It ought to go in the catalogue with all those little masterpieces that we love to handle in velvet calf or vellum - With many thank again, yrs SincerelyElizabeth Parker04697
