John Muir


[Asa K.] McIlhaney


Martinez, Cal.,Jan. 1, 1914.Dear Mr. Mc Ilhaney:The flowers of the High Sierras I like best are Cassiope and Bryan thus; of tree flowers, Magnolia grandiflora and the African Baobab (Adansonia digitata) are favorites. But I have so many others on all the continents I am unable to name them in a letter or in hundreds of letters. They come thronging about me in such loving multitudes a score of volumes could not hold them all.With best wishes for success in your flowery work, I am,Faithfully yours,John Muir.
