[Robert Underwood Johnson]

Martinez, Jan. 30. '05.

Dear Mr. Johnson:

I wish yon could help me to understand the trouble in Washington about the Yosemite national Park boundary. It seems to be caused by two rival lines of electric railroads, one of which wants to cross the southwest corner of the park. which if granted might. I suppose. form a dangerous precedent. Here is a fine clipping for you.

Faithfully yours,

[John Muir]
