Mr. Colby tells me that you are revising your Hetch Hetchy article for the Bulletin. And I write to ask when, I may expect to receive it or will you send it direct to Murdock Press?By the way, Murdock is moving down town and will be ready in a week; somewhere near Mission and Second Sts.I hope that you are enjoying good health and also this welcome rain.Your article in the Outlook was the most beautiful piece of description that I have ever read and gave me the greatest of pleasure, irrespective of the strong advocacy in the cause of letting [illegible] alone. Fortunately the utilitarians will have to make a strong showing to overcome your arguments. With kind regards, very truly Yours[illegible]03988
