Oakland, 25 May, 1892.
John Muir Esquire
My dear Sir:- Although not personally very well acquainted with you, we have several mutual friends which fact emboldens one to write you. You may have heard that I am desirous of being a candidate for Congress to succeed Judge McKenna. [Contra Corta?] County is in the district, and I am persuaded that a kind word from you in my behalf to those gentlemen in your county who have influence in the naming of delegates to the convention would be very beneficial. If you know enough of one to justify this favor, and to excuse my asking
it, I shall be very glad, & shall be very gratefully yours
Geo. E. Whitney
