are not generally overburdened with this world's goods
With thanks for your cordial greeting
I am sincerely yours
Oliver Th[illegible] Miller
My dear Mr Muir:
I was very glad to receive your letter of the 14th last evening. I can hardly credit your statement that writing is a "slow awkward unnatural business" Certainly I can't believe that your chapters on the
blessed little ouzel and the squirrel you immortalized in your book, were hard writing. They sound like the impetuous outburst of a [man?] full of love for them.
I shall be very glad to call on you when I reach San F.-if I go, as I now fully
expect to. and -- as I believe I told you, I expect to reach San F. near the end of March.
Thanks for the name of a naturalist in Phoenix. I shall probably be very glad to hunt him up.
I can't give exact dates yet, for I hope to make a few engagements to [illegible] in California to help out the exchecquer for we scribblers you know
Brookline, N. Y.
