John Muir


[letterhead]Storm-and-fog bound for two daysAugust 10 1912Dear Muir:I have your letter with Freeman's report. Thank you. Please send me antying you may see, have or put on paper to [countract?] it.Of course the question is not yet settled whether other sources are available. [Hazer?] simply considers the character of the water.As we go to press six weeks before publication I must have material for another editorial--in November--early in September. Do what you can.05248

My editorial in August "A D[illegible] of the [South?] to itself" is being widely sent out and copied and favorably commented on.I dont understand your letter in one respect. Am I right in thinking that we are to have an article or two on the Amazon but none on Victoria Falls? Our people must know immediately what to expect as they are making announcements soon. Please address your reply to me at the Century office though we shall probably be here through August. It will be opened by Buel & forwarded.I am golfing and fishing and [resting?] here, only disturbed by such anxieties about my next year's programme as whether we shall have any articles by John Muir--a former friend of mine!Faithfully yoursR. U. Johnson
