Martinez, Nov. 17, 1901,

My dear Johnson.

Since the Park & Reservation book was off my hands I have been looking over my Yosemite stuff & planning the Yosemite book we spoke of years ago. Possibly some of the new chapters I'll have to write may be worthy of a place in the Century. I'll go to San Francisco in a day or two & look over Robinson's sketches, photos etc & report to you
Of course the Tamany earthquake was heard & felt there & I often thought of you & fancied I saw

you in the thick of the battle. Well done. Hurrah How glad Roosfelt must be. I am told he is a great friend of the forests & so am hoping to see a great extension in the Civil Service roles in the management of the reserves. I'm glad to learn that Owen is going bravely ahead, Good luck to him with all my heart. As the Autobiography You, Houghton Mifflin & other publishers have so much to say about not a word of it has been written. We are all well. Wanda is at the State University. I ordered a copy of my park book sent you - hope you'll like it

Ever cordially yours

John Muir
