Mr. John Muir,
Martinez, Cal.
Bear Mr. Muir,

The box containing the three sketches of the tributaries of the Muir Glacier, together with the duplicate photograph of Thorns Hill's picture, reached me Saturday and I am much obliged to you, I have already written you about the copyright in the Hill picture, but in the mean time it has been put in the engraver's hands, ft there should be any hitch about it, it would fce too bad. but I do not suppose there will be any difficulty, as you own the picture.
One more favor-will you kindly tell me which of the pictures already made to illustrate the discovery of Muir Glacier should be rejected and which you think we might use? I want to use any that you think will answer the purpose as they have already been made and paid for, but on the other hand, I do not want to use them if they are misleading- You will know better than anyone else which we would better reject. Kindly mark the proofs end return to me, as soon as convenient. I believe you have a set of them.
