to the public on a subject [illegible]o dear to our hearts, and I presumed Mr. Johnson might think it worth while to put it in the Century, but so far I have had no word from it. If you see Mr. Johnson and care to bother about it, I would appreciate your interest. If it is worth using I hope it may be published before Congress adjourns in June. Mind you, I am not trying to get famous by my writings--that is one art about which I know nothing, but if my humble contribution will in any way help to save our parks I shall be more than repaid for my labors on my first manuscript. How is your book on the Yosemite getting along. I have sent them the maps they wanted to use as illustrations. With much love from the four Marshallsand hoping to have you with us soon,Sincerely,[illegible]Mr. John Muir,Care, Mrs. E. H. Harriman,No. 1 East Sixty-ninth Street,New York City.
