[First draft of letter, in note-book]

[Robert Underwood Johnson]

Martinez, Fob. 27, '05,

Dear Mr. Johnson:

I wrote you the other day after sending a telegram proclaiming victory after a hard fight. Hereafter most of the Yosemite work will be done on your side of the continent, and I look to you as leader.
I enclose letter from Mr. Colby, with copy of recession bill. Please return both.

Faithfully yours,

[John Muir]
