EDWARD HYATT.SUPERINTENDENTSTATE OF CALIFORNIAOFFICE SUPERINTENDENT PUBLIC INSTRUCTIONSACRAMENTOJuly 29, 1909,Mr.John Muir,Martinez, Cal.My dear Sir:I venture to intrude upon you with the announcement that all the city and county superintendents of schools of this State will meet in convention at the Yosemite Valley during the week beginning August 23 and I venture further to invite you to attend this convention in person and to take part in its proceedings by giving the superintendents of the state an informal talk on the Sierras, the Yosemite or any other topic that appeals to you as a good one to pass on in this way to the children of California. I think it would be peculiarly appropriate for these men and women to have a chance meet John Muir, whose name is so closely linked to all that is fine and inspiring in our California mountains. And I do not know where you could have a better audience or one more inspiring than these earnest men and women devoted to the training of the boys and girls who will be the citizens of the future.I send in another enclosure a copy of a booklet on CONSERVATION that has just been issued by my office. I hope you can find time to look it over and that it will appeal to you as being not an entirely bad thing to do. I shall be glad to hear from you at your leisure about the convention above referred to.Most cordially and respectfully yours,Edward Hyatt04550
