Martinez, Cal. Feb. 27/05

Dear Mr. Johnson:--

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

Faithfully yours,


John Muir
