John Muir


ARNOLD ARBORETUM, HARVARD UNIVERSITY.Jamaica Plain, Mass.,March. 9.,....................1908.Dear Muir:I am very sorry to hear about your grippe but if you think it is as bad as Crataegus disabuse your mind of that idea at once, for I have had them both this winter and know of what I speak.I am going next week for a short trip as far as Miami, one of our old stamping-grounds in Florida as some new trees besides Crataegus have been discovered down there and I want to see them. It is a relief to hear that there is something new in the world but Crataegus.Take care of yourself and get me the Walnut material if you can.Faithfully yours,C. S. Sargent.John Muir, Esq., Martinez, Cal. 04089
