William D. Armes


John Muir



Oakland, July 22, 1892.

My dear Mr. Muir,

I enclose a letter that I have just received from Mr. Robinson. It seems to me a case that we would do well to take some action on. A number of our Directors are away, but if you could come down we could probably get a quorum, and do something. Dr. Senger and Mr. Price are now in the Valley, and I shall write them to keep their eyes open.

Yours sincerely,

Wm. D. Armes.

Would a newspaper article on the subject do any good! Could you not get the Chronicle to publish an editorial? Please return Robinson’s letter.
