JAMES R. MANN.MEMBER OF CONGRESS.BANCROFT LIBRARYHOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES U. S.,CONFERENCE MINORITY ROOM.WASHINGTON. D. C.August 28, 1913.Mr. Robert U. Johnson,327 Lexington Avenue,New York City.My dear Mr. Johnson:--The Hetch-Hetchy bill is one not free from difficulty for me, but I have no doubt that it will pass the House practically as reported by the Committee on Public Lands. I endeavored to name as republican members of that committee very able men, some of whom at least have been quite prominent in opposition to graft legislation. The committee seems to be unanimous. Action on the bill has been deferred for some time, but I think it will be passed when it is taken up.Yours very truly,[illegible]N. C.[illegible]
