Mr. John Muir,

Martinez, Cal.

My dear Mr. Muir,

Mr. Johnson has just shown me the query at the end of your letter of the 10th as to the sales of your book.
We are glad to report that the first edition of fifteen hundred is exhausted and we are getting well started in the second edition, which, considering the fact that the book has only been out a few months, is, we think, doing very well. We have had a steady demand from California and have supplied a number of dealers there, but most of them get their supplies from the wholesale dealers in San Francisco, all of whom we think keep the book in hand. We have within a few days received a further and additional order from Messrs. Payot, Upham & Co. for 150 copies. If you will kindly let us know of any dealer who has difficulty in getting supplies we shall be glad to see that the matter is righted.

With sincere regards, believe me

Very truly yours,

Frank H. Scott
