R. U. JOHNSON,
C. C. BUEL.
John Muir, Esq.
My dear Muir:-
I have already written to you about the appointment of the superb forestry commission. It is now very important that the recommendation of $25,000 for its expenses should not fail in Congress. Will you not write a special letter to Senator George C. Perkins, and have the Sierra Club also call his special attention to the great importance of the subject and to the high character of the commission. This should be done at once to be effective, as the Sundry Civil Bill, including this item, will be considered by the Senate soon.
1896 Mar 26
