Dear Muir:-

I have been doing all I could, during the past three weeks, to hurry along your book, and we now have the promise that the last proofs shall be in our hands next week, which means that they will reach you about the 1st of August even, I hope, a little earlier.
In this case, shall you go to the Tuolumne region? If you are going, and if it were not for the uncertainties and perils of railway travel, I believe that Gilder and I would feel like sending our boys to you for the projected trip; but at this time the risks are certainly very great and actual, and it now seems best on the whole to postpone it until next year - that is, if you think of going next year. . Perhaps Burroughs could be got to go out with the boys about the 1st of July of next year.
