Kate like fate has been going for the Governor & I [illegible] he must be dead or at least paralyzed on this. How fares the bill [illegible]. I hope you gained all the basin if you have then a thousand thousand trees & flrs will rise up and call you Blessed besides the other mountain people & the usual "unborn generations etc" In the meantime for what you have already done I send you a reasonable number of Yosemite thanks & remain very truly Your friendJohn Muir
