[George W.] Stewart
Dear Mr Stewart-
[in margin: 765]
I have no objection to the use of extracts from my letter on Mt Whitney in your Club journal.
I thank you for calling my attention to the canon running parallel to Kern Canon, & to the canon of the Little Kern, both of which I must some time examine.
I shall not be with the Sierra Club this year. After the President's visit to Yosemite May 15th to 18th I expect to make a long trip to Russia, Manchuria, Japan, Jara etc to learn what I can
sailing from New York May 29th. reaching San Francisco perhaps about the end of the year.
Your article on the Poetry of the Polynesians I have read with great interest. It deserves a place in a better magazine. Sometime you should write a little book on these lovely islands & there inhabitants. Interest in them is growing & will grow for many coming years.
I am glad your club is flourshing. You should gain many members from the south end of the state, & all Fresno should be with you. Remember me to all the Visalia friends I met last year.
Goodbye. Ever faithfully yours.
