May 31, 1904John Muir:-Dear Sir:-You will remember my father Dr. John T. McLean, who built the first road into Yosemite. My knowledge of your love for and interest in the High Sierra prompts me to write you about a piece of information which came to me accidentally a day or two ago. Some few weeks ago I heard that two tracts of land, one of 16000 and the other of 10,000 acres within the Yosemite National Park, and lying on the watershed between the Coulterville and Big Oak Flat roads, had been purchased by a lumber syndicate. The part of this land lying on the Coulterville road as you know, consists of the [primeval?] forest. Two or three days 03362
