John Muir



Jan. 9 1894

Dear Mr. Muir:

I send by this mail proofs of the list of published writings. It will all print on a 4-page leaflet without crowding. Trust that you will find the style of composition satisfactory. Any rearrangement, such as placing the Tribune letters in just preceding the other newspaper letters, instead of heading the list as a present can be done very readily.
If you have the essay that you contemplated reprinting ready, would be pleased to receive it.
If you have the dates on which your new articles for the The Century

will appear, would it not be well to include them in the list and bring the date down to the present?
Will send you up a couple of little booklets of Sonnets in a few days. On the cover shall request the recipient to refrain from publishing without my permission, so I trust they will not get prematurely before the general public and kill any commercial value they may have for me.
Give my very best wishes for the New Year to Mrs. Muir and the children and tell Mrs. M. that my juveniles accept the invitation to pay a day's visit to Martinez in cherry time with enthusiasm.
My visit with you will long remain a landmark for me.

Yours devotedly

C. W. Carruth
