[in margin: Gen 3174]

My dear Lummis,

Many thanks for you editorial in last Sunshine. The two Calaveras groves seem safe at last. Now we must fight for a decent administration of parks & reservations in general on a permanent basis. Only the merest beginning has been made. In particular the appropriations for forest guards & rangers are ridiculously inadequate. I should like very much to see you but the way seems blocked just now, with work that should have been off my hands

long before this. Of miserable interruptions there has been no end this winter How you can accomplish so much is to me marvellous. Good luck to you. Come to my house when you can Possibly I may be your way within six months but I dinna ken

Cordially Yours

John Muir
