ARNOLD ARBORETUM.est Commission appointed by the National Academy. The Academy has asked for an appropriation of $25,000. to enable this Committee to do something. If the appropriation is made the Committee will organize, and prepare a report which I hope will have some weight; but if the appropriation is not made, the letter must go over again for another year.Whether this Committee organized this spring or not I intend to go west late in June, first to British Columbia and then southward to California. I shall be seeking for information about Pines, Firs and Spruces,and I count on you as a companion for a trip into the Sierras. This I should suppose would be early in September.Always faithfully yours,[illegible]Johii Muir, Esq.Martinez, Cala.
