at all if, as you say, nine-tenths of the citizens took ground against the Hetch Hetchy project; but so far everyone [illegible] has bean for it and I have been in the disagreeable position of seeming to interfere with the development of the State for the sake of keeping a valley, which apparently hardly anyone wanted to have kept, under national control.I wish 1 could see you in person; and how I do wishI were again with you camping out under those great sequoias, or in the snow under the silver firs.Faithfully yours,[illegible]Mr. John Muir, Martinez, California.
