[Robert Underwood] Johnson




Martinez Sep. 15, 1913.

Dear Johnson

I hope to get more California help soon. Have just discovered that both Col & P. have carefully concealed all our circulars from California not even sending copies to our Sierra Club members, fearing I suppose the S. F. press. & damage to their business & professions. This is natural & perhaps reasonable enough, Mr C's employer is or has been the citys leading lawyer in H. H. affairs, & Mrs C. is Pres. of the Alameda Co. Womens Club, & of course keeps quiet. Some of our best Washington friends are kept mum for the sake of family official bread. of course I'll do what I can without open assistance of our club members who may be dimly on our side

Ever faithfully

John Muir
