[Theodore P.] Lukens


not well

Martinez, May 21 1900

My dear Lukens,

I have not been able to leave home for a long time on account of Grippe. So I cant give particulars as to Sequoia lands of Moore & Smith As to my views on the sheep forest business they are well known. Anyhow, I cant possibly write on the subject just now as I am away behind on promised articles that must be done soon. I dont belive however that the sheep evil will ever again gain headway in Cal. Yous should all insist on more guards.

Cordially Yours

John Muir
