White settlers first came to this part of California. The main demand and sale of the Book is here in Yosemite, though many orders come from the eastern states, and EuropeThere is an increasing desire with the residents, and visitors to Yosemite that its management should revert back to the U.S. government and under the immediate control of the Forestry Commission and I hope you will use your influence in that direction and also against the segregation of a large portion of the two western tiers of Townships of the Yosemite National Park, which there is a strong movement now to have done so as to set that fine belt [illegible] of Forest timbe face to use for lumberYours sincerely Galen Clark
