Mr. John Muir,
Martinez, Cal.

My dear Muir,

Thanks for your note of the 8th of June.
I am sending to our friends in Washington all the information I can get about the invasion of the National Park. I was in Washington the last ten days of May and put in some licks for the Cleveland reservations. The impression there is that they are secure. The House will stand firmly against their abolition. The matter is now in conference on an amendment to the Sundry Civil Bill. Bliss protests that he is very strongly in favor of the reservations, but I fear that his zeal is in order to get some offices to distribute.
I have put the matter in the hands of the Civil-Service Reform Association here, who, if the appointments do not naturally fall under the classified service, will urge the president to so include them.
I wonder if you copy of ray ballad of "Dewey at Manila," which I intended to send you.
I presume you will not go to the Klondike this

year. It would be just like you to sneak away to Manila when nobody was looking.
My wife and daughter are in Paris for the summer.[illegible] to follow.
With remembrances to Mrs. Muir and the children,

Faithfully yours,

R.U. Johnson.
