PETRIFIED FOREST NATIONAL PARK BILL
Mr. John Muir,
Grand View Hotel, Grandview, Arizona.
Dear Mr. Muir:
Further answering your letter July 31st, written from Adamana:
Am advised that the Petrified Forest National Park bill passed the House June 28th, but as Congress adjourned two days afterwards, no action was taken thereon in the Senate.
I have no doubt that the matter will be taken up again and strong efforts made to put it through.
1906 Aug 14
