whereas there have been filed with the sierra Club certain complaints against the [management] of the Yosemite valley; and whereas it is the policy of this [club] to give all such complaints a fair and just hearing and investigation, and at the same time to be entire justice to the Yosemite Valley [Commission;]
Now therefore, be it resolved that a Committee of five be appointed by the President of the Club to investigate all such complaints at are now on file with the [secretary] or as may hereafter be made; said Committee to report at its earliest [opportunity] and to have full power to incur such expense as may to them seem necessary for the purpose of carrying on [the] investigations.


Belcher, and after seeing him he may refuse to act, can you not suggest the name of some fairminded man who has not yet taken any part in this discussion to go in his place?

Yours truly,
Warren Olney



[San Francisco, Calif]
