[Robert Underwood] Johnson
Martinez, June 2, 1908Dear Mr Johnson;The governors Conference was a most novel & notable affair & you may well be proud of it as your own invention whether you get credit for it or not - from the public. Nevertheless Pinchot deliberate acceptanc[e?] of the honor belonging to it without a word for you was distressingly mean & must prove a great trial to his many friends. Anyhow never mind, dont take the sin against friendship & comradeship too sorely to heart. Compensation of some sort or other is sure to come, & we must go ahead fighting for God's righteousness forgetting all that is behind. P. Is ambitious & never hesitates to sacrifice anything or anybody in his way. Toss the miserable thing out of mind
