4Kings River portion is very incorrect hope it will not much matter Even the geological survey map is very faulty. The map of the Valley I sent you is the only one that at all approximates correctness as far as I know. I am afraid Mr Robinson has been talking too much about our scheme & even publishing My mother wrote me a month ago that she had been reading what she called an article on Kings R written by R. I have not seen it. The illustration of the floor of Vall & [your?] view of walls from Manzanite Orchard I think very fine. Also of Glacier Monument (White Woman) I think you should give a picture of the [illegible] Dome from the floor. I sent you a sketch –Every cordially yours John Muir
