[Robert Underwood] Johnson
4muzzle on fruit wood root or leaves. Kates letter to Stanford is a stunner. I suppose you saw the governors long telegram to Stanford in reply. None of the papers here seem willing to take up the subject in earnest. Here is a feeble editorial from the Bulletin. The extract from the N.Y. Post you mention has not yet come to hand. If I like it I will try to get it republished in the Bulletin, but I dont know how Mr. Fitch may look at the matter. I have not yet had a talk with him. The love of Nature among Californians is desperately moderate consuming enthusiasm almost wholly unknown. Long ago I gave up the floor of Yosemite as a garden, & looked only to the rough taluses & inaccessible or hidden benches & recesses of the walls. all the flowers are wallflowers now, not only in Yosemite but to a great extent
1890 Mar 4
