My dear Muir:-

The inclosed letter would seem to indicate that the report in the California newspaper which you sent to me, about legislation forbidding the cutting of trees, etc., in Yosemite was not accurate. Certainly no such bill is among the measures which have been sent to me by the Secretary of State.
Had there been any such bill I was intending, as we had criticised the Yosemite management, to take notice of the improved state of affairs.
I hope you are very well. Sargent asked me to come last week to see his rhododendrons and azaleas, and this forcibly reminded me of our visit to New England's literary shrines* which I shall always remember, with great pleasure.

Dear Sir:

In answer to your letter of May 27th 1895, relative to legislation in connection with the Yosemit Valley.
I have made a careful examination of the laws and resolutions passed at the late Session, but do not find the ones you refer to, in fact I believe we have sent you copies of all the Bills and Resolutions passed referring to this subject.

Yours Very Truly

Lewis A. Brown
