It would have given me the greatest pleasure to meet one whose name and work have been so long familiar to all those who love our wonderful national parks and the other glorious national beauties of this country of ours. [illegible]tive official duties compelled my giving up the anticipated Yosemite trip and the chance of meeting you personally, but I sincerely trust that my visit to the Yosemite & meeting with you may only be "pleasures04875
