Ed. S[cribner's]M[onthly] [Robert Underwood Johnson]
[letterhead] May 20” 1880 Dear Mr. Muir: Your last letter to me has been displaced, but we have just recalled the [proposition?] you make of the articles on Alaska. We should very much like two and probably three papers on that subject to add to those we have on hand, in a definite announcement for next year. (The “California Alps Excursion” will appear in the forth coming July number). We want to
begin these in November and go right on with them at only an interval of a month or so. We hope you will continue to give us the first chance at what you write, for unless there should be some [unlooked?] to prevent our handling the material, for cont[illegible], we should like to publish for you.With sincere regard, [Ed. S. M.?]00915
