EDITORIAL ROOMSHOUGHTON MIFFLIN COMPANY4 PARK STREET BOSTONApril 27th, 1910.Dear Mr. Muir,We have read the journal of your First Summer in the Sierra with uncommon interest. It takes the reader out of doors and up into the mountain air, it seems to us, with extraordinary vividness. A contract for its publication will presently be sent you, and if you will send us at your convenience the illustrative material we shall just it forward at once.If, as we imagine, most of the sketches are in the nature of incidental drawings, we shall probably plan to insert them in the body of the page, as text cuts, which always gives a pleasant and familiar aspect to a book.With our hearty thanks foe this new book, of the success of which we shall be sanguine, we areSincerely yours,[illegible]John Muir, Esq.04749
