[Robert Underwood] Johnson
22Martinez March 29, 1893.My dear Mr Johnson-I see by the newspapers that the President has appointed a Wisconsin man to the land office so that Irish danger is past. Weeks ago however I sent my protest to Hoke Smith against Irish, & I suppose Armes did. I know that Robinson has been dealing out Southern Pacific influence in his grand way. It is hardly so bad as he makes out but disgracefully near it. I admire your efforts for Yosemites sake Your pluch & & perserverance for the public good in such matters is immortal & well nigh divine Were you not a sadly rare man the J.P.s of this world would speedily wilt.
1893 Mar 29
