Henry Fairfield Osborn
AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HSTORY NEW YORKOFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT25 January,1910My dear Muir:I am greatly impressed with your Hetch-Hetchy Valley document, and am writing strong letters to Ballinger as president both of the Museum and the New York Zoological Society. I hope your splendid appeal will have its reward.The money-grubbers surround us on every side, and. I am reminded of the hymn, "Christian up and smite them".Mrs. Osborn and I would love to see you again, and it is possible that we may because we are turning our faces toward California for the six weeks beginning March 1st. How early is it possible to go into the Yosemite?Is not Gifford Pinchot's removal a terrible loss to the country.With kindest regards,Always faithfully yours,[Illegible]John Muir, Esq.04689
