Martinez Apr. 30, 1899My dear Prof. SargentYou are no doubt right about the little Tahoe reservation - a scheme full of special personalities pushed through by a lot of lawyers etc but the more we get the better anyhow it is a natural park & because of its beauty & accessibility is visited more than any other park of the Sierra except Yosemite.All I know of the Rainier & Olympic reservations has come through the newspapers The Olympic will surely be attacked again & again for its timber but the interests of Seattle & Tacoma will probably save Rainier. I expect to find out something about them soon as I am going North from Seattle to Cooks Inlet & Kodiak for a couple of months with a "scientific party" Pray for me. We are to leave about
