[5]Raymond, Fresno Co., Calif.Dec. 9, '90Dear Mr. Johnson:I posted a note to you this morning, and afterwards received yours of Nov. 28 - which had been up the road towards Yosemite. The information in your note concerning your recommendation of me in connection with the Park is so much of an unforeseen circumstance in my mind that I cannot yet think it probable that anything will result from your endeavor. This, none the less, is gratifying to me. I would best show my appreciation of your kindness in case of the effort in my behalf being successful, by doing whatever I should have to do to the uttermost of my ability. It would not be without hesitation that I would undertake a part in the executive management06354
