[Robert Underwood] Johnson
125 Martinez, Jan. 1, 1914With all my heart dear Johnson I wish you a happy new year and congratulate you on the grand work you have accomplished in the one just closed, and useful honors gained. The gathering of your good friends about you at the testimonial dinner must have been a most delightful and telling affair and full of lasting good cheer, and warmed my heart to read. As you say the long drawn out battle work for nature's gardens has not been thrown away. The conscience of the whole country has been aroused from sleep; and from outrageous evil compensating good in some form must surely come.And now for new work with the new year. You are still young in years,- old only in good deeds- fifteen years younger than your devoted admirer and friendJohn Muir
