United States Senate,WASHINGTON, D. C, Feb 3d. 1897.R.U. Johnson. Esq.,"Century Magazine, New York City, N. Y.My dear Sir:-I am in receipt of yours of the 1st inst., relating to the transfer of the Yosemite Reservation to the United States, I agree with you perfectly with respect to the advisability of such action, but I am of the opinion that the State Legislature should take action before the matter is brought before Congress. I should not feel at liberty to bring the matter to the notice of the Senate unless authorized by the California Legislature. I therefore suggest that you write to Hon. Warren Olney, 101 Sansome St. San Francisco, who is a lawyer and a member of the "Sierra Club, and solicit his aid in securing proper action in California.Yours very truly,[illigible]02235
