December 9, 1909Mr. John Muir,Martinez, California.Dear Mr. Muir:Permit me to acknowledge your kind letter of November 7th, and also your convincing discussion of the Hetch-Hetchy case. There is but one possible justification for the use of Hetch-Hetchy -- if San Francisco could not obtain the supply anywhere else.Very truly yours,[signed] David Starr Jordan06847
