[Robert Underwood] Johnson
J.M.2.want the dog story!I am sorry that I have not more promptly answered your inquiries, but we have been heels over head in business, which has been in arrears by reason of the fight against Tammany.The symposium is turning out well. We shall have twelve or thirteen contributors including yourself, and most of them endorse Sergeant's plan. Those connected with the Government Bureaus in Washington - Mr. Bowers, Mr. Fernow and prof. Cleveland Abbe - are rather inclined to oppose the plan, though they strongly favor the object.[illegible] Mr John Muir,Martinez, cal.01887Mr. John Muir,Martinez, Cal.
