John Muir


[William] Colby


Martinez, Oct. 1,/07

Dear Mr. Colby:

I was very glad to get the galley proofs or the Hetch Hetchy papers and am doing all I can with them. Glad McAdie has copy. Send him a lot when they are in pamphlet form. Mr. Keeler is taking hold in good earnest, and will be sure to give efficient help.
I had a fine, hearty letter from Marshall. He is doing all he can for us, and may go to Washington, and be consulted by the Sec. [Secretary]. Send him copies. His address is U.S. Geological Survey,Sacramento, and hadn't we better try to get the Women's Clubs interested? I think they might make a strong fight. Garfield, I see, has gone off with the President on a lecture tour. I think we'll win.
