My dear Mr. Muir:
It has occurred to me since your letter came, that it would enlist more aid for saving the Hetch-Hetchy, if you would be willing to write a letter to the southern members generally, to be read to them on the next walk, next Saturday & Sunday Nov. 1 & 2 when we stay over night at Muir Lodge & climb Monrovia Peak next day. There will probably be a goodly number
it being the second time of gathering at the Lodge. It would surely inspire many of them to do something, if they could read the extreme need of it & perhaps how best to do it in a personal message from you.
If you could find time to do this, mailing the letter to me not later than Wednesday (Tuesday, if possible), I can take it with me & read it to them Saturday evening.
You may be sure I shall be glad to show you the book when it is really ready. But oh! I do get discouraged, for I can't find time to work on it. However I am bending every effort toward it.
Affectionately your friend
Mary Frances Kellogg
P.S. Mr. Vroman gave a set of your books to Muir Lodge.
