[Melville B. Anderson]
in the Dial in some other farther flying journal.The battle for Hetchy Valley is not yet lost. It is now raging in the Senate and I still hope we shall win. As to damning the dammers they are damned already and buried beneath a roaring flood of lies.Yes, I was a few days in Naples waiting for a steamer on my way home from South America & Africa, and though in haste after a year of wild wandering would gladly have waited a few weeks for the joy of meeting you had I been able to find my way. But never mind we'll make all that loss up a thousand over. I can't account for the Hooker's failing to visit you. Hope they may yet. I have not yet seen Prince Charlie Keeler since his return. He is now in New York with his children.Ever dear friend affectionately yoursJohn Muir05623
