San Francisco, California.
Dear Mr. Manson:-
I was very glad to learn from your letter of May 10th that the earthquake had damaged neither your activity nor your courage. I hope sincerely that in the regeneration of San Francisco its people may be able to make provision for a water supply from the Yosemite National Park,' which will probably be equal to any in the world. I will stand ready to render any assistance which lies in my power.
I Was very glad to note that the Attorney General rendered an opinion which agrees with the views held by you and the Forest Service.
Very sincerely yours,
(Signed) GIFFORD PIHCHOT, Forester.^7*
