[page 3] I hope you got my letter in which I begged you to write Mr. Kent “of the value of Redwood Canon Park in the City and Neighborhood.” In another letter Mr Kent also asked if “John Muir would write a letter speaking of the need of the Redwood Forest in ‘Muir Woods’ as a nature park near the city and stating that its use for such purposes is higher than for storing a little water.” Your sincere friend Catharine H. Hittell 808 Turk St San Francisco With love to you and Wanda and Helen and wishing you all – Happy New Year.
