Raymond, Fresno Co., Cal.Jan. 16, ‘93Dear Mr. Johnson:I send you a copy of the report of the Yosemite Com’rs: also, with this note, an editorial from the Chronicle, evidently called out by your article in this month’s Century. I have read that article with great interest, and hope that it will stir up folks; who have the means, to make an effort to move the Legislature. I’m afraid that I’ll not be able to get to Sacramento. I would have liked much to have seen Special Agent Weigel’s report in full. I doubt about its being a very effective picture of the condition of the Yosemite. The way he speaks of Clark (in the extract published in your article) shows that that venerable fraud’s white beard and soft manner humbugged the special agent, as they have done for a good many other people.06428
