[Robert Underwood] Johnson


Martinez, Jan 18. 1913.

Dear Johnson

Many thanks for the fine water supply paper.
What do you think of Phelan's trying to grab the place of Secy of the Interior!!?
Am hard at work in my lonely den like yourself in a lively one
With nearby good wishes

ever faithfully yours
