My dear Mr Johnson

I send the MS per ex today. Have been greatly interrupted by sickness (grip) business etc. Could not make Yosemite less without making bare bone skeleton - will write Tuol Canon soon - probably 5000 words or so. You can divide what & send as you like. The yosemite fight is going on fully here

Yrs truly
