[Robert Underwood] Johnson
Sent to Clarke DavidPhil PressJan 27 ’92Raymond, Cal. Dec. 12th.Dear Mr. Johnson: I enclose a letter prepared with the intention of addressing it to a Philadelphia paper. I’m afraid, however, that I may send it to some friend of Charles Dudley Warner or some one else on the other side. consequently I send it to you, and you may direct it to any place where you judge that it will do the most good and be most likely of publication. All that you need do (unless you see some benefit to be obtained otherwise) is to address an envelope to whatever editor you may select. I think (perhaps it is self flattery) that I have handled Mr. Warner in a very neat fashion, and if the letter should be published. I hope that he will see it. If you can, send me a copy or two in case of print. The more I think of it, the more I am convinced that to achieve substantial results of the agitation, we must have an investigation this winter. A travelling committee sent out here would be too much under the S. P influence, and I really don’t know who could be with them to represent our side. I cannot undertake to remain here, if I can get away, and Robinson, if he could attend, is not the right kind of manager06423
