Martinez March 4. 1890.Dear Mr JohnsonI went to the city yesterday to seek the illustrations you want. Keith had three paintings of falls in Tuolumne Canon. I told him they were too large. He will make copies of these in India ink, & a copy a fine painting of the Tuolumne Meadows & Mts Dana & Gibbs, also India ink sketches of two or three other rocks & falls in the big Canon. He promises to have them ready this week when I will forward. Robinson I could not find - Hill is in Portland, Or. His address is 360 12 St. His son told me that he did not think his father had or could furnish photographs of the paining from Inspriation Pt, though he would have no objection to having it engraved for the Century
