& go about your many other good things. Of all my friends none has done so much as you have for the public good in the way of forest preservation & the great parks.As for Hetch Hetchy the battle, as I see it, is not yet lost The preservation of natural beauty resources seem to be lost sight of at times, but light must come at last & we must arouse public opinion ere it is too lateI'm feeling better my long illness & anxiety about Helen & am now trying to write. Your name will honor my Yosemite book & last long after above squabbles are forgottenEver my dear JohnsonFaithfully yours John Muir
