R[obert] U[nderwood] Johnson
The House has passed the Tulare Big Grove Bill and I am urging it before the Senate Public Lands Committee. I hope the Yosemite Bill will go through soon. The Land Office recommended these limits[in margin: Sierra ridgeNevada line]But I got them to leave off the Nevada end & put it back about where you said. I feared complications from mining interests. Now if you could get some strong letters written soon in favor of the bill addressed to Senator P.B. Plumb or Sen. Wm. Vandever M.C. it would go through.More anonR.U.J.01454
