My dear Muir:
I have heard that the President and Secretary of State signed the forest documents yesterday, so everything is safe as far as it goes. Now we must bend ourselves to getting the Reserves protected by the military. Would it be possible to get your legislature to pass a joint resolution favoring the plan? This would probably have more effect than anything else on politicians like McKinley; but whether this is done or not, we ought not to leave any stone unturned now and strike while the iron is hot. I hope soon to hear from you on this subject and any other you may care to write about.
Always faithfully yours,
John Muir, Esq.
Jamaica Plain, Mass
1897 Feb 23
