3"So how this valley theme may gang let time & chance determine perhaps it may turn out a song perhaps turn out a sermon" If you are particular about the size of the thing let me know & whether you want a second article on the other Sierra Yosemites or to have all treated in one. etc etc. Mr Robinson has been giving descriptions of the Kings River Canon in the Sunday Chronicle.
