[First draft of letter, in note-book][Robert Underwood Johnson] Dec. 27, '04.Dear Mr. Johnson:May I trouble you to send me 2 more copies of the Cent[ury]of Sep. 1897? It seems to me the dog story would sell well as a little book, judging by the many questions I have to answer about it.Yo[semite] recession seems promising, though Hearst's paper here is fighting it with damnably perverted energy and skill. Here is a specimen of what appears in every day's Ex[aminer].How are you all coming on. I see Owen [Johnson] has written another book. Good luck to him and to you all.With best Hew Year's wishes, I am.Faithfully yours, J. M.03098
