image description
J. M. 2.scription of the blizzard in the August number is very good, and the book as a whole is a genuine addition to the record of American life. She is a young woman who after coming from Dakota has lived up near Shasta, where she taught school. She is a graduate of the University of California and a very nice person. I am asking her and her husband to make themselves known to you, and I am sure you will find them congenial.About the last of September I expect to go with Mrs.Johnson to Italy for three or four months. I wish I could be here to push along the recession scheme, but I am relying on you to get the Sierra Club to take the initiative in this matter. Does not the California legislature meet this winter? Now that the management of the Yosemite National Park has vindicated itself, there ought to be no objection to the recession, which will be of decided advantage to the smaller reservation and which would protect it against a lot of vulgar schemes. Please let me know if anything is likely to be done and how I can help it before leaving.I am sure you had a royal time in the King's River Cannon. How I wish I might have been there:Faithfully yours,[illegible]P. S. I have alsosent you my book of collected poems.John Muir, Esq.,Marlinez, California.03024
