But there are evidences that a great onslaught will be made upon McKinley at once, and the Forest Commission and its friends are organizing here. Of course, first of all we must have Western support. Can you not have the Sierra Club at once endorse the action of Senators Perkins and White in insisting that the California reservations should not be annulled. If this could have a preamble to the effect that the State of California is overwhelmingly in favor of the reservation system, it would very much help us in supporting it in other states. I wish you could have a lot of letters written to Perkins and White asking them to fight for the reservations in other states, for any amendment that may be carried will apply to the old reservations as well as to the new. I am writing to other Western people to-day, but we must rely on you to organize our friends in California. A letter to McKinley for [illegible] Faithfully [illegible][illegible] John Muir, Esq. Martinez, Cal. 02254
