EDMUND A. WHITMAN, BostonDear Johnson:-We all send you many thanks for your brave Hetch Hetchy work in all our fights on park matters you have been and are our main stay and leader. Those letters in the Times and Evening Post are capital. Do not allow yourself to be handicapped by lack of a stenographer. We will gladly furnish all the money you want. Send the bills to me. Smoot, Senator, is a stanch friend on our side of the fight, so is Representative Denver S. Church. Be of good cheer. Nothing that we can do on the side of justice can be wholly lost. I'll write you again soon. Be careful of your health these hot days and don't fret all will turn out for the best in the long run.Ever faithfully yours,[illegible]
