Dear Dr. Schlich,
It give me very great pleasure to introduce to you Mr. John Muir, through whose efforts about one half of the Sierra Nevada in California has been reserved, to become later on a regularly managed government forest. You will find, as I have done, a store of scientific observation open to you through him which rests upon an unparalled

I can only recommend him to the hospilality which I have so delightfully experienced myself. With best regards to Mrs Schlich,
Very sincerely yours,
Biltmore, N. C.
