My dear Muir:-

The inclosed letter from Senator Perkins will interest you. Will you please consider it confidential, though it is not marked "personal". It seems to me that it is well for the friends of recession to know that the Senator is with us.

Yours Faithfully R. U. Johnson,

Mr. John Muir

United States Senate,

WASHINGTON, D. C,

Feb 3d. 1897.

R.U. Johnson. Esq.,

"Century Magazine, New York City, N. Y.

My dear Sir:-

I am in receipt of yours of the 1st inst., relating to the transfer of the Yosemite Reservation to the United States, I agree with you perfectly with respect to the advisability of such action, but I am of the opinion that the State Legislature should take action before the matter is brought before Congress. I should not feel at liberty to bring the matter to the notice of the Senate unless authorized by the California Legislature. I therefore suggest that you write to Hon. Warren Olney, 101 Sansome St. San Francisco, who is a lawyer and a member of the "Sierra Club, and solicit his aid in securing proper action in California.

Yours very truly,

Geo [George] C. Perkins
