Mr. John Muir,
My Dear Mr. Muir:-
Your Favor of the 14th is at hand. I am very sorry indeed it was not so you could go to Sacramento at the time I telegraphed you. I was anticipating the enemies of the bill would rush the matter through before the people had a chance to investigate it. They knew very well if the matter was ventilated that it would pass the house unanimously. I do not think there is any doubt but the measure will carry two years from now, but that is a long time to wait. As the session is to last but a few days longer I think it would be a mistake to reconsider the matter at this session, as there will be such a hurry it cannot to fully discussed. It is a great disappointment to Mr. Melick, as every representative he explained the matter to voted for it, and if he had only have had time to discuss the matter before the house, with the light you and others could have thrown upon it. it would have gone through without a hitch.
I hope you are all well. Kindly remember us to Mrs. Muir and the children. With very kindest regards to all, I am,
Yours most cordially,
1897 Feb 15
