John Muir


Linekin, Maine, July 9, 1896.

My dear Sir:-

I have mailed you a circular of our new Magazine, "Suecess", to be published in August, in which I think you will be deeply interested. Its aims appeal to all friends of American youth for their sympathetic support, and a careful reading of the Foreword will give its scope and field of work.
On behalf of its management, I take pleasure in inviting you to be a contributor to its pages, by one or more articles during the current year, for which we shall pay as generously as our Treasury will allow. I shall be glad to receive also a word of encouragement that we can use in our first number.
Hoping to hear by very early mail of your willingness to contribute of your valuable thought and life experiences for the benefit of our young men and women,

I am, most truly,

"Summer Home."
