Fresno, Cali. Jan. 6, 1902.
Mr. John Muir
I thank you very sincerely for your telegram of the 4th to the Commission. In the campaign last fall, I refused to allow the officers under me to leave there legitimate work for political work, & declined a demand for campaign money. Also a supervisor who was a political friend of a Congressman was discharged for inefficiency, or worse. And there was a charge I cannot account for that I had "antagonized" the Water & [illegible] Association. Under the circumstances I thought it allowable to write & telegraph as I did to you & Wm. Thomas, & Warren Olney & Pres. Jordan. The [illegible] was more than I anticipated.
Very sincerely yours,
C. S. Newhall [illegible] Supt.
I enclose 1.10 for the telegram.
