ForestryMartinez Feb 27, 1896My dear Johnson,I read & burned your Capital editorial on Yosemite. It is only through the growing & multiplying interest of the rising generation of Californians that I see ground for hope for recession or better management. I suppose you have the last Sierra Club Bulletin containing my address on Yo. & Park affairs, published this month. If not I'll send you a copy.I'm pegging at that Alaska Dog Story & the Glacier Adventures I promised. When is the Alaska Trip to be published. Next year I hope to have a little Alaska book & shall need these articles in it.Alfred Russell Wallace, Darwins friend & coworker in a letter to a friend in the Cal; Academy of Sciences gives extravagant praise to my "Mountains of Cal"-- The J. P. I clippings may amuse you, our necktieless friend who might well have a long one with a noose--Ever yours cordiallyJohn Muir10019
