WHITE HOUSE,WASHINGTON.March 14, 1903.My dear Mr. Muir:Through the courtesy of President Wheeler I have already been in communication with you, but I wish to write you personally to express the hope that you will be able to take me through the Yosemite. I do not want anyone with me but you, and I want to drop politics absolutely for four days and just be out in the open with you. John Burroughs is probably going through the Yellowstone Park with me, and I want to go with you through the Yosemite.Sincerely yours,[illegible]John Muir, Esq.,Care of President Benj.Ide Wheeler,University of California,Berkeley, Cal.[03184]
