My dear Muir- I have had some conference with Mr. Garfield, the Secretary of the Interior, who has been here several days, in regard to the management of Yosemite Valley, and have told him you knew more about it than any one else. He says he wishes you to write him on this subject, and intimate[ly?] he would follow up suggestions. You will have
plenty of time, for he will not be at his desk in Washington till September 15th. Dont forget this; but useless this word to you, so warmly lies in yr heart the glorious valley.
Edward R Taylor
Thank you for your good words.
