[Robert Underwood] Johnson
Martinez Sep. 17, 1914Dear friend Johnson:The farmer's Hetch-Hetchy protest is dead, like the valley itself in which several hundred men are now doing desolation work.Your protest against the Kaiser's war work is good & strong. Civilization has not gone very deep as yet, but we are making some slight progress heavenward, & "it's coming yet for a' that, that man to man the world o'er shall brothers be and a' that."I have not seen the Life of C[illegible]our you mention but ill send for it.The Century Co. made a mortal mistake in letting you go, as soon they must knowLast winter's grippe has kept me half sick all summer but am now getting better & pegging away at another book.Be of good cheer dear friend, better days must surely be drawing nigh.Ever faithfully affectionately yoursJohn Muir
1914 Sep 17
