[Robert Underwood] Johnson



Martinez Oct. 27, 1913

Dear Johnson:

That letter of yours in Colliers of Oct 25 is Capital, the best ever! We held a Sierra Club meeting last Saturday. -passed resolutions, & fanned each other to a fierce white Hetch Hetchy heat. I particularly urged that we must get everybody to write to senators & the president, keeping letters flying all next month thick as storm snowflakes, loaded with park pictures, short circulars etc. Stir up all other park & playground clubs women's clubs etc
Gleason the lecturer & mountaineer is going to make a lot more telling slides of the H. Hetchy, & will use them in his lectures. I'm sure you & Osborn can get him to lecture at the Am. Museum & perhaps also in Washington. I have written to Eliot & mean to try Hadley, Jordan is with us.

Ever yours bravely

John Muir
