William and Maymie Kimes Annotation

This article is composed of two enteries excerpted from Muir's journal of his first summer in the Sierra. Of Tuolumne Meadows Muir writes: " Every feature already seems familiar as if I had lived here always�.The forests, too, seem kindly familiar, and the lakes and meadows and glad singing streams. I should like to dwell with them forever." This issue of the Bulletin also contains a letter from the Board of Directors of the Sierra Club to the President, the Secretary of the Interior, and the Secretary of Agriculture, recounting an attempt to create a reservoir that will destory Devil's Post Pile and eliminate Rainbow Falls. The petitioners urge that the area be protected by being designated a national monument. The first of the ning signatures is that of John Muir. See pp. 52-53.
