785[in margin: [illegible]to]books of this sort because there is a right natural hungry call for them now that the rich picturesque foundational pioneer days of our great country the greatest in the world with all its pathos & romance is passing into dim foggy history. Up & at it. The letter you wrote me a month or two ago on the Sequoia Parks I sent with a few words of my own to Johnson, & he in turn forwarded them direct to the President, who replied in a personal letter which was in every way encouraging to the tree lovers & trees, & discouraging to their enemies.Faithfully yours


[Martinez, Calif.]
