John Muir


[Charles Sprague] Sargent


Martinez, Cal

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


Martinez [Calif.]
