J.M.2R. w. GILDER, EDITOR.R.U. JOHNSON,ASSOCIATE EDITORC.C. BUEL,ASSISTANT EDITORYou say you think we should give a picture of the Teche-pitee Dome from the floor, but we had to choose between duplicating that subject or using another one, and we thought better to have as much variety as possible.I am very sorry that Robinson should think that because he went with you to do some work for us in the Valley he was at liberty to exploit it himself It is considered a point of honor among our artists not to interfere with plans in the execution of which they are employed, and I promptly telegraphed him that we should object to his writing elsewhere about the Valley until after the publication of your article. He did me the courtesy to send to me an article intended for "Kate Field's Washington" for which he had engaged to write, and I am writing to him about that.I have lagtely had a week of camping-oout with John Burroughs in the Catskills, altogether a very enjoyable holiday. My family are still in Frnce, and expect to sail from Liverpool on the 3rd of October.What shall we have some for the article? Speak up!Now for the alaska articles! Plan them thorough and said us a schedule & oblige.Yours (Illegible) cordially,R.K. Johnson.01537
