THE WORLD'SWORKFARMINGDOUBLEDAY PAGE & Co.133-185-137 EAST 16TH STREET,NEW YORKCOUNTRY LIFEIN AMERICATHE GARDENMAGAZINEMarch 16, 1909.My dear Mr. Muir:That was mighty good news that your letter of a month ago brought that you had actually done some work towards the autobiography; and the inference that I draw from it, of course, is that you are going to keep that task going. I hear indirectly that you and Mr. Burroughs have been having a tremendously great time in the companionship of the Grand Canyon and such things. I congratulate both you and the canyon; and I look forward to the coming of that autobiography as one of the great events of my life. This little note is simply to send you my greetings and good wishes.Sincerely yours,[illegible]John Muir, Esq.,Martinez, California.04459
