My dear Muir:-

I have your two inclosures accompanied by your note, and as the time is short before the report of the Secretary of the Interior, I have ventured to send him copies of these letters as well as of other material relating to the reservation scheme & I think Brown suggestion a good one and will follow it up.
I do not see any harm in the Southern Pacific Railroad Co working for such a scheme Of course they expect to make something out of it, but if they make it legitimately I have no objection, and by legitimately, I suppose they mean to make it by running the Railroad as near as possible to the Reservation.
I am backing up the Secretary of the Interior in "The Century" for January.
I wish, however, you could find out who Havens and Stow are, and it might be well to be sure that you are not falling into a trap. Robinson would probably take an extreme view of them.

Faithfully yours,

R. K. Johnson.
