R[obert] U[nderwood] Johnson
I have just heard from a business man of San Francisco that the attack on the Hetch Hetchy is a bluff to advance the Spring Valley water Co's scheme. He was very sure of it.
A few days ago I sent to the Secretary of
the Interior a formal protest against granting the privilege desired and I hope to be able to stir up some opposition through the press.
R. U. Johnson.
