Martinez April 19th 1890My Dear Mr Johnson,I hope you have not been put to trouble by the delay of that M.S. I have been interrupted a thousand times while writing by coughs grips business etc. I suppose you will have to divide the article. I will write a sketch of the Tuolumne Canon & Kings River Yosemite, also the charming Yosemite of the Middle Fork of Kings River all of which may I think be got into one article of 10,000 words or so. If you want more than is contained in the M.S. sent you on the peaks & glaciers of the east of Yosemite, let me know & I will try to give what is wanted with the Tuolumne Canon. The Yosemite Century [leaven?] is working finally even this far throughout California. I
