Hetch Hetchy politicians stopped everything. Their robber Raker bill will come up the Senate for final action not later than December 6th. And in the meantime we must fight hard to raise a storm of public opinion to defeat it, hoping President Wilson will veto it. And of course you will help and get as many as possible to help, sending protests to senators and President in flocks thick as winter snowflakes. We are getting lots of new circulars and pamphlets printed some of which I’ll send you. In the meantime here are a few old ones.

With kindest regards to your cousin I am ever faithfully yours John Muir
