Yoseimte - 18 Nov.I have just learned that the Yosemite Nat'l Park Act is defective. The western boundary is improperly described. I will write about it to some paper, and send copy to you, so that you can understand. Newsham left this afternoon, having visited Glacier Point with Clark this morning. Why could he not have accepted my offer to show him around the Valley? The thing doesn't look right - that is, if Newsham came to investigate and not on a mere pleasure trip. He told Clark that he was a particular friend of Noble, etc. etc. The Examiner's article (referred to above) was a telegraphic condensation of my letter to Noble. The Examiner has an editorial on it, but my words are greatly misrepresented and the whole effect weakened.06352
