[Enos A.] Mills


Martinez, March 17, 1913.

Dear Mr Mills:

With great pleasure I'll send you a copy of my Boyhood as soon as I can. The book has not yet reached this side of the continent tho it was published on the 15th of this month.
I'm glad you never weary in well doing. We have another big Hetch Hetchy fight on our hands. The San Francisco park plunderers, are going to Congress with lots of money to try to get the valley in fee simple. The Sierra Club counts on your help.

Faithfully Yours

John Muir
