John Muir


Siasconset - one last day here!

July 28, 1913

Dear Muir:

You see from the Times letter inclosed that I have opened fire on Pinchot. If he will only reply we shall get the attention of the country.
I also send you the "Open Letter" If you find anything in it that is not correct or in the line of your campaign please telegraph me
Care of Mrs. [F?]. H. Holden.
so that I may make the change before it is printed.
I am ordering 50 copies of the Times letter to be sent to influential people outside the press.
On with the dance!

[Faithfully?] yours

R U Johnson
