Dear Mr. Muir,
I beg your pardon most sincerely for my delay in sending you the letters which go by this mail. it was very careless of me, but the matter slipped my mind completely. I have been in camp for a week, or it would have been attended to before. Of the letters I send you, that to Dr. ([illegible] Sir Dietrich,) [Brandis?] will, I thin, be the most valuable
His position as a [illegible] as well as his achievements as a forester put him in a position to introduce you to the most interesting men in Europe in these two [illegible]. Let me ask you again to excuse my delay, and thank you for the delightful [letter?] in New York.
Very sincerely yours,
Biltmore, N. C[arolina]
