[Theodore P.] Lukens
As to acquiring the Calaveras grove
Martinez, Apr 28. 1900
My dear Lukens,
I have written to Senator Perkins as you desired recommending you as a member of the Appra[isement?] Committee on the Calaveras Grove. While the iron is hot we should I think strike for Government Ownership of all the Sequoias of the Sierra. I hear that the large holdings of the bankrupt Moore & Smith firm are now for sale by the creditors. Stir up the Water & Forest Club on the matter The more done by the Government for the Sierra forests the more will be done for those of the South.
Ever Yours John Muir
