53 Chancery LaneLondon, W.C.April 8, 1908.[Mr?] John Muir.Dear Sir,I am writing to send you, by this week's mail, a little book on the Welsh and English mountains which I have just published, not because I think [it?] particularly worthy of your attention, but because I have in several passages made reference to your "Mountains of California", a work which has been a source of much joy and inspiration to me, as I am sure it must have been to many other readers. Permit me, though a stranger, to offer you my thanks for the beautiful things which you have there written of the mountains. Your book is worthy of its subject; and what04133 more could be said?I remainYrs faithfullyHenry S. Salt.
