R[obert] U[nderwood] Johnson
April 25. 1890
Dear Mr. Muir:
The Yosemite article is here. Thanks very much. Now let us have the Tuolumne Canon[diacritic] part for it is the addition to Vandeveri bill's limits that we want to deal with especially.
Very sincerely yours,
R. U. Johnson
My brother has just been nominated to the lower House of Congress in an Indiana district where nomination is equivalent to an election.
Private: Mrs. Hearst heard of the [illegible] doing's two or three days ago for the first time - I need hardly say with indignation. I did not open the question with her, of course. I rely on her influence to help to a better state of affairs next winter when the legislature meets.
…Union Square, New York
