John Muir


[Robert Underwood] Johnson


Call. Jan. 30/05.

Dear Mr. Johnson:-

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

Faithfully yours,


Martinez, Calif.
