ARNOLD ARBORETUM. J. Muir.2Of course this is all for your own eyes only and not to be talked about until we hear from Washington what they are really going to do. I think I made some impression perhaps on the president, out Bliss is one of those machine trading politicians who knows nothing out side his dry goods' store. He has been convinced too by the Geological Survey, who expect to get the appropriation for surveys out of this bill, that he is doing just the right thing. It would be a great comfort to me if I could see you for five minutes and tell you just how I feel.Faithfully yours,[illegible]John Muir, Esq.Martinez, Cal.02268
