3that I can write the article from my old notes. I made three trips through the Kings R. Canon & one through the wild middle fork canon with its charming Yosemite. Also I traced in a three months excursion the entire belt of Sequoia from Calaveras to the Kern. I think with you that the Yosemite monopoly ought to be broken up though fair service is rendered the public. You will not have John P Irish in Congress to trouble you. I will send you some of my Kings R sketches in a day or two I dont like most of Robinsons.Ever yrs trulyJohn Muir[marginalia]
