Old lone Home, Apr 25, 1908.Dear Sellers;Many thanks for your kind three-score-and-ten telegram. The years these days however laden with care are the only things that go fast.I'm pegging away at Stickeen getting ahead, but at a pace about as slow as that of a starving glacier that has not had a full hearty storm-meal of fountain snow for a dozen winters. How comes this word-work to be so strangely difficult? Why even to dreamy wanderers should climbing Anglo-Saxon sentences be more difficult than climbing mountains? But no soft sympathy may be looked for from hardhea[ed?] Chicago. O pshaw you'll say, Go to the dogs or the dog & so I will doggedly. Heaven bless you all with sweet unliterary peace & believe me everfaithfully yoursJohn Muir
