P. B. Van Trump
Yelm, Wash. June 26 - 1900.Dear Mr. Muir:You will see by the enclosed sheets of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer that I am still pegging away at the Sheepmen and incidentally serving the legislators over whose eyes the former have succeeded in "pulling the wool". As I sorely need the position I hold (P.M.), it is doubtless bad policy to antagonize the Senator who controls the federal appointments in the state, but, I am first of all such an enthusiastic mountaineer, such a friend of the national park and such a lover of nature, that I can not remain mute (feeble though my uttered voice be) when such outrages are attempted. I have been very much concerned at seeing no organized effort on the part of the Sierra Club and02654
