My dear Mr. Muir,

We have just received the inclosed letter from the Board of Education at Sacramento.
We usually give permits of this sort where they do not wish to use too much material, and we consent in this case if you are willing. If their selection is from matter to be included by you in your forthcoming volume it might help its sale. Perhaps it will save time if you will write directly to the department, giving your permit or not as you may see fit, and then write and let us know what you have done.

Very truly yours,

Mr. John Muir.
