[Robert Underwood] Johnson
Martinez June 9th 1890
My dear Mr Johnson,
Yours of M 28 received. I am glad the additional Tuolumne material answers your purposes & regret that lack of knowledge on my part has thrown so much patching editorial work on you. The Post editorial is good. I admire your pluck and perseverence in so worthy a fight as on this & the copyright. I send a few clippings. Saw Fitch of the Bulletin the other day & asked him sharply how he could oppose copyright. He said they had not opposed the bill very much - a mean answer. I suppose this raising of the price of literature is what most publishers fear. The copyright rhyme is good but rather too long I will try to get it republished.
The Bulletin is in favor of extension of the Yo park - objects only to taking in out of state management admits that past management has been about as bad as possible. Had a long talk with Fitch on the subject. Thanks for asking me to name price of Yo material. What the Century Co thinks a fair price will be satisfactory to me.
