[Charles Sprague] Sargent
Nov. 5, 1894
My dear Sargent
The little book is now in the stores. How are you getting on with the 7th vol. of your grand book.
You are a most happy & heaven-blessed giant of a man in being blessed with the work of such a book. I envy you your celestial-terrestrial toil. I am barren this year, have been nowhere--puttered away the summer
with the proof sheets of the book. When will you be ready for the Himalaya or Caucasus I am ready for either range, but for China no. I have the Colorado Canon in mind & will take a saunter in it someday.
I send you with this a box of walnuts. They are all fresh from the tree.
Remember me to your family and believe me ever,
Yours cordially John Muir
1894 Nov 5
