Millicent Shin [Editor Overland]


Martinez April 18. 1883.

Dear Miss [Shin?]

I am lost & choked in agricultural needs & am almost beyond the memory even of literary work so that much as I should like to give you the article you want I am not able or nearly able to do so. Work is coming upon me from near & far & at present I cannot see how I am to escape its degrading [illegible] effects. Get some one to write an article on the [vice?] of over-industry, it is greatly needed in these times of horticultural storms. Ever yrs truly John Muir.
