Prof John Muir

Martinez Cal.

Dear Sir:

I apply to you as having had great experience in mountaineering for the best equipment for exploration in localities mainly accessible on horseback. In this region there are few Alpine difficulties and the food and sleep problem is the main one to provide for. Do you carry a gun and if so what model? Do you carry a sleeping bag or blankets?

Yours Respectfully,

Chas. H. Robinson
