NEW DISCOVERIES PETRIFIED FOREST
Mr. John Muir,
Mr. Arthur Chapman is a newspaper syndicate writer living in Denver. He was recently asked by the Sunday editor of the Globe-Democrat-to furnish an article about the Petrified Forest, and wrote to me for particulars as to anything new there.
Have taken the liberty of briefly mentioning your discoveries, as it is good advertising for the Santa Fe. Should Mr. Chapman write you, he is not entitled to any more facts, unless perfectly agreeable to you to furnish them.
