heard anent the “copy”, altho’ a month ago I wrote asking for the return of the article if it was not “available” or at least for a line informing me of the rejection. I have several other articles wandering around in search of a resting place, all more or less devised to keep the Yosemite subject before the public, but they seem to have wandered until they have dropped over the edge somewhere, and I have ceased to waste time and good hard writing in such an unprofitable fashion. I will inform you of my later movements from time to time. I have not yet been able to lay hands on copies of the Biannal Report of the Commission. There must be plenty of them somewhere.Yours Very TrulyGeo. G. MackenzieIf I mistake not, the travel to Yosemite has been very light this season.
