Margaret E. Glick
Los Angeles, Cal.June 29, 1910.Mr. John Muir,Martinez, Cal.Dear Mr. Muir,-I thank you most sincerely for your kindness in replying to the letters from my pupils, and for writing so fully. Your letter will be kept as one of the treasures of the Sixth Grade at Hoover, with the book which they so dearly love to have read to them. The book was presented to the class by one of the pupils - the year it was published, and I gladly a[illegible]de to the request of each new class for "Stickeen" — it contains so many excellent lessons, - and while they follow you and the dog most anxiously - I rejoice that they are at the same time being led - step by step - out into the storm, and over the glacier!04822
Our school closed June 24 - we looked most anxiously for your letter, but I told them you were a busy man and it might not come, I am so glad they are to have this surprise in the fall when we come together again, for the letter followed me to my home, and they are not to be disappointed but will know "John Muir" as their friend.Again thanking you, and hoping for many more stories from your pen. I am,Sincerely yours,Margaret E. Glick.04822
