Mr. J. E. Wilson,
Ticket Office,
A. T. & S.F. Ry.,

Dear Mr. Wilson:

I am glad to hear of your plans for making H[etch] H[etchy] Valley easily accessible.
The information you want you will probably find in the inclosed sketch, which please return, as I shall want to use it in a Yosemite book I am now writing.
Wishing you good luck, and thanking you for your kind invitation to visit the Valley, I am,

Faithfully yours,

[John Muir]
