John Muir-3I have been working hard on this question because, once taken up I am very anxious to see it go through, but almost all the work has fallen on me and I have been sadly neglecting my business for the past few days. The difficulty is that men like the Senator referred to and the Examiner reporters have nothing else to do but to devote their entire time to fighting this proposed Recession. Those who favor the Recession have not the same personal animus nor the time to devote to the proposition and hence it is in serious jeopardy. I have done and will continue to do all that I possibly can to aid in this matter but I need some strong assistance.There will be a Directors meeting a week from today and I trust that you can be down on that date and we can further talk over this important matter.Very truly yours,[illegible] 03504
