THE WORLD'S WORKDOUBLE DAY, PAGE X COMPANY-PUBLISHERS133137 EAST SIXTEENTH STREET,NEW YORKWALTER H.PACE.EDITOROctober 14, 1909.My dear Mr. Muir:I observe that you are continuing your pleasant occupation of conducting Presidents of the United States through the Yosemite Valley. I hope that at such intervals from this labor as you manage to get, you are making head way with your autobiography, for which we and all the world are waiting eagerly. I hope, too, that Mr. Taft came away with the feeling that San Francisco must not be allowed to turn any part of the beautiful valley into a water tank.With my very kindest greetings,Sincerely yours,[illegible] RageJohn Muir.
