[Robert Underwood] Johnson
Martinez, Cal., April 28/05.
Dear Mr. Johnson:-
I am very sorry that I could1nt go to Yosemite with your friend Mrs. Woodhouse. I saw her however, before she started on the trip and after she returned. She had a fine time and seemed perfectly delighted. I should like very much to know her better.
Finck's Yosemite article in the Post is capital. We shall probably need lots more of his help before everything under the new management can be got to going smoothly. What a glorious park the floor of the Valley may be made by such an architect as Fred 01mstead. Who in the world are we to get in his place? A good landscape architect with a free hand, and the control of campers are perhaps our most important objects.
Are you coming west? My daughter Helen who had pneumonia a year ago, needs Arizona air and I mean to take her to the Grand Canon and petrified forest in a week or two, to be gone perhaps most of the summer.
P. S. Please send me Mrs. Woodhouse. N. Y. addres
