Martinez Ap. 24, 1914.Many thanks dear Johnson for your grand letter so full of cheer & good hope for your best work. With so encouraging a beginning the endowment of the Academy cannot fail. Mrs Harriman knows very well what you have done in public welfare work especially in park & forest preservation. I have often time told her that of all my friends you were the most steadfast & indomitable in all good work holding right ahead unstopable as a glacier. She is now in Paris but will soon be back, & you may rest assured I shall do all I can in the way you suggest. The Wm Ellery Hale lectures are just right for Academy p[illegible]. I'm slowly gaining strength but still unable to travel. Sick or well dear Johnson I am ever faithfully your friend.John Muir
