ARNOLD ARBORETUM.2listen to What I Shall have to say to him When it is known that California is really to furnish the Secretary of the Interior, can't you either directly or through other influences get him instructed on these points? I am waiting to Mr. Alvord, the president of the bank of California, on this subject and it might be well for you to confer with him about it.I now have to devote most of my time to this forestry business this being my third visit to Washington this winter, and so The Silva is not getting on as fast as I wish it was; still I am not without hope of seeing the volume of pines completed before our trip to AlaskaFaithfully yours,[illigible]John Muir , Esq.Martinez, Can.
