Martinez Oct, 6, 1913

Dear Parsons,

Johnson wants to know if Bade [diacritic] can go to Washington, starting early as possible, attend Conservation Congress there 17th to 20th & the mass meeting for Hetch Hetchy at the Natural History Museum N.Y. on the 21st, Have time to see senators etc
Whitman, he says can't go. Olmsted is not coming to see the Valley. Perhaps just as well now rains have set in
Urgent requests for stereopticon views of H.H. are coming in for use at the big Museum, Cant we get Gleason to manage this. He is just the man for it. Come up & talk over everything next Sunday & get plants etc

Ever faithfully

John Muir
