My dear Mr. Johnson:
Tours of the 18th instant has been received, for which I thank you very much. I will consult with the President in regard to the matter of the reservation.
I have directed the Chief Clerk to send you an advance copy o f my annual report, from which you will perceive I have noticed the article in the Century. You will also observe that I do not approve of Captain Wood's suggestion as to curtailing a part of the Yosemitu Park, but make a suggastion of a less quantity, to be restored to the public domain.
I thank you very much for your good words of encouragement in the January number.
John W. Noble .
P. S. I notice What you say in regard to the matter of the story of Miss Haleted. and thank you for your attention.
