[letterhead]On no other basis can I account for the fact, for it is a fact, that among the [illegible] [illegible] to our Supreme Court since I have been in my present [position?], I have a higher percentage of [illegible] then any other judge in the state.It has [never?] yet been my fortune to get out to the Pacific Coast - but I often think that if I could get there, the first effort I should make would be to find you, and with you renew the many pleasant remembrances of the past. Your love of science and nature never [flags?] - and it is that which doubtless contributes still to your own vigor as well as [illegible] and happiness. I heartily sympathize with your efforts to preserve Yosemite Park from the grip of the money power. and have been interested in what I have read relating to the matter in the Outlook & other periodicals. May I hope to hear from you sometime [illegible]![illegible] sincerely yoursM. S. Griswold04441
