.C. C. BUEL,
My dear Muir:
I thank you for your letter and for the inclosure from the Examiner, which is to be execrated. I am sending it and an extract from your letter to E. A. Bowers, formerly at the Land Office and now secretary of the American Forestry Association asking him to have a resolution passed by the Forestry Congress now in session in Washington endorsing recession. I have no doubt he will do it.
I have sent you two copies of the September 1897 Century as desired, and I have called Mr. Scott's attention to my pet project of the publication in hook form of your dog story. I wish we could have that as a little volume for next Christmas. The only objection to it is that it is so short, but I believe you could easily double it in length. What I should like to do would be to station a reporter behind a screen when you were telling the story with-out your knowing he was there.
A Happy New Year!
R. U. Johnson
Mr. John Muir.
