Yosemite Valley, July 26.

Mr. John Muir:-

My dear Mr. Muir:-

On reaching here Sunday night, I found your letter waiting me. Mr. Bartlett and I have had a fine tramp so far, from Berenda to Wawona, and thence on a trail to Glacier Point and into the Valley. We expect to start for Tuolumne Meadows to-morrow, thence to Mt. Lyell, and if we have

time we want to try the trip down the Tuolumne to Hetch Hetchy. We are very grateful to you for your directions. Mr. Armes has written to me asking me to find out what I can about the report that the commissioners of the Valley have authorized the cutting of under-brush in the Valley. I have spoken to Mr. Galen Clark and he says that it is merely for the purpose of protecting the Valley, so that in case of a fire, it could more

easily be put out. He is strongly in favor of it. Mr. Clark has not received notice of his election to the Sierra Club. I will write to Mr. Armes about it.

Yours very truly

R. M. Price.
