ARNOLD ARBORETUM. 2politicians are out for blood and they do not mean to give up if they can possibly help it. I depend on you to keep up your end. Of course we can jet articles in California papers reprinted in the east. This seems desirable as showing that this is not a purely eastern movement against the west.The Commission has been charged on the floor of Congress with all sorts of crimes, among others that we are acting in the interest of Wall Street and attempting to prevent the production of silver; another is that we never went near the reservations at all out passed the Summer staying in [partial] hotels looking at maps. It would all be very amusing if it was not so serious.I am only home this morning and write in great haste, but am, always faithfully yours, C. S. [illegible] John Muir, Esq.
