EDITORIAL-DEPARTMENTTHE CENTURY-MAGAZINEUNION-SQUARE-NEW-YORKApril 24th, 1891.R. W. GILDER, EDITOR.R. U. JOHNSON,ASSOCIATE EDITOR.C. C. BUEL,ASSISTANT EDITOR.John Muir, Esq.Martinez, Cal.My dear Muir:-It seems an age since I heard from you or wrote to you, since which wonderful things have happened.I now write particularly to say that we are ready for the text of your article on the "King's River Canon". We have made our selections from Robinson's pictures, but if you have others which might be utilized, as your sketches were before, perhaps we might get two or three more pictures in this way. I hope you will be able to go ahead with the text of this article, and with your Alaska papers immediately thereafter. I know what nice weather this is to be out of doors, but of course you will want to write a little also, and doubtless your last articles are about finished.Are you going to the North Pacific this summer?I have had letters recently from Robinson and Mackenzie in regard to the Yosemite, and I shall indicate to the Secretary of the Interior the substance of them. The Governor's veto of the free road certainly shows hostility, and shows that the whole thing must come up anew in the next Congress01508
