Mr. King


Martinez Nov 1913

Dear Mr King:

I have received with many thanks your magnificent Hetch Hetchy photographs, a very telling lot.
I wish you would send Nos. 945, 948, 949, 953, 954, 958, 962, 963, 964, to Mrs. E. H. Harriman
1, East 69th Street
New York
And the same to Mrs Henry Fairfield Osborn,
850 Madison Avenue
New York City
with my compliments, and of course charge to me.
Where did you find that magnificent sugar pine? The finest specimen I have ever seen in a photograph. How tall is it, and how large in diameter 4 feet from the ground.?
We are having a hard fight for Hetch Hetchy but think we will win. Help all you can

Ever faithfully yours,

John Muir


Martinez [Calif.]
