John Muir


[letterhead]I tried to get a copy of this [illegible] this year, but found it only as the first page of a calendar. I wish the publishers would re-issue it as a card. When are you going to tell us more of the04924

message of the mountains? And what has become of that autobiography that you promised to write? It would be an inspiration to so many that it ought not to be delayed.With renewed thanks for our Christmas feastwith its grateful thought, and with our heartiest New Year wishes to you all.Sincerely yours,Florence Merriam Bailey.
