[Robert Underwood] Johnson
Martinez, July 5/07
The Sierra Club outing party will be in Yosemite on the 8th or 9th this mo. & possibly I may run in with them for a day or two. If so I'll gladly look out for the Gilder boys. Anyhow I'll tell Colby to invite them to the club camp & to the high Sierra where you were long ago.
I have not heard from Madam Modj[illegible]ka about the Yosemite trip. I intended calling on her in Los Angeles a few weeks ago but was told she was then too sick to be seen. I would gladly be her guide as far as possible but alas I'm becoming so
popular most every tourist wants me, & how then could I get any real work done.
I'm heartily with you, as you know, on the reservation of all the Upper Appalachian forests. How glorious they are & how fast they are falling!!.
As for the particulars of the Yosemite recession battle, it's a long story & I would rather tell it direct than write it. Good luck to you & the Appalachians
Every faithfully yours
