BUEL.ASSISTANT EDITORJohn Muir, Esq.Martinez, Cal.My dear Muir :-I have just time to acknowledge receipt of your fifteen original sketches of Alaska glaciers, and of the letters relating to the Yosemite, to which I will give attention as soon as possible.In the report of the Secretary of the Interior, to appear on Monday next, he backs up the friends of the reform in Yosemite, and also has the following paragraph which will interest you:"Your attention is also requested to the paper contributed by Mr. John Muir to the number of the Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine for November, 1891, entitled 'A rival of the Yosemite - the canon of the South Fork of Kings River, California.' It furnishes maps of this section and is illustrated by most admirable engravings of the wonderful scenery there existing. The engravings are chiefly from the pencil of Mr. Charles D. Robinson. These gentlemen as well as the editors of the Century, especially Mr. Johnson, have taken a great personal interest in the forest reserves in California.01542
