[letterhead] Treas. [Dep’mt.?], 1 Dec. , 1883.

John Muir, Esq. Martinez, Cal.

My Dear Sir:

I regret very much that I had not myself corresponded with you regarding your contribution to the Arctic report. Your article on glaciation would have been exactly the thing and would have

admitted of very effective illustration. I feel well assured that you were purposely [illegible] fo[illegible] regarding the report, and could readily explain the reason to you in a personal interview. There has been anxious inquiry for your notes on glaciation. I wish you could give them to the public [this?] the volumes of the

Century or Harper’s Monthly. Just now would be an auspicious time for the publication of any thing relating to the Arctic region. This little volume is much sought after and is highly commended by the press. I can send you some more copies if you desire, or will mail to your friends, if you will furnish addresses.

Yours Truly [E W. Clark?]
