HOUGHTON MIFFLIN COMPANY4 PARK STREET BOSTONMay 22, 1909.John Muir, Esq.,Martinez, California.Dear Mr. Muir:We are sending you by this mail advance proofs of 22 of the 32 engravings from Mr. Gleason's photographs which are to illustrate the new edition of "Our National Parks", and hope that you will like them,We understand from our Mr. Ticknor that you are not especially enthusiastic about adding Mr. Chamberlain's statistical matter about the Parks as an appendix to the volume, and we do not for a moment wish to urge it if you do not care for it. When he brought it to us, we thought it might be interesting, but we are perfectly willing to dispense with it if you would prefer to omit it.Yours very truly,Houghton Mifflin Company.F.J.G.04506
