[Charles Sprague] Sargent
3stating that the President would arrive at Raymond by special train Friday morning, May 15th drive through the Mariposa Grove & Yosemite & return to Raymond on the evening of the 18th thus allowing me, if I could go, to leave for Boston May 19th or 20th - & begging me to write you etc. though I had assured him our arrangements were all made, berths secured etc. Yesterday I also received a letter from the President, from which I quote.031914A four days trip seems a small affair to make such a fuss about, & could not justly be allowed to derange plans for a six or eight months trip, still it would be a good chance to talk forest affairs & especially to urge immediate action on the proposed reservation of the Northern Sierra forests, against which the lumbermen sheepmen etc are now making a bitter fight. Thus however might perhaps be about as effectively discussed in a letter or two. Anyhow tell me as soon as you can by 03191
