I made a second trip in order to see that the bill for the Recession of Yosemite was properly introduced in both houses. You probably saw by the papers that this has been done.

As near as I was able to ascertain at that time, the matter will come before the joint committee next Wednesday.

I will give you a couple of days notice and I sincerely trust that nothing will interfere with your being there with us for you are the most important person to help us in this matter and it is simply03509
