John Muir, Esq.
President of the Sierra Club
of San Francisco
My dear Sir:
My. Edwin Abbot has requested me to write a notice of the life of his son, my old classmate and chum, in response to a request from your society for a short memoir to accompany the account of his last fatal expedition. It will give me great pleasure to put in permanent record my knowledge
of his rare and brilliant life.
Will you be good enough to let me know how much space you wish to devote to this purpose and the date of publication so that I may be able to place in your hands whenever required a suitable article.
Very truly yours,
8 Oct. 1896.
1896 Oct 8
