Martinez, Jan 21

My dear Mr Johnson

You are very kind in promising to send us Tesla. I shall be delighted to know him. He seems to be one of a thousand thousand & more. Mrs. Muir seems to know him well already, though they have not met. She ways that he knows far more of the Lord's lightening than Edison.
I'm in no hurry for Alaska money. When is the first article coming out?
I'm pegging away at the book Send me another set of my old articles for the book if you can
Heaven grant you the strength of ten. You need it in the place you fill

Ever lovingly admiringly yours

John Muir
