Los Angeles. Cal. Mch. 21st 1902.

My dear Muir:--

Thank you heartily for the $10.00 for the Indians, receipt of which is hereby acknowledged. When we get our official stationery you shall have a formal receipt.
I am just back from a week’s wagon trip through the Warner's Ranch country, and have had Juntas with several hundred Indians, to whom I have "preached" in Spanish a great many hours within the week. I wish you could hear me in the pulpit. Poor devils, they are good people, gentle, dignified and tender hearted even under the bitter stress of losing their

immemorial homes. I believe fully that we are going to do something actual and sensible for them now, and one reason for my faith is that we have got through the thick hide of the Indian Department, which is a good deal harder to penetrate than the Indians are. Our Commission has been agreed upon at last and will soon be at work.
Your book was a joy to me which will not wear out, and my notice of it was a very little to what I would like to say.
Turbesé sends love to all of you, and I would like you to remember me kindly to your family.

Hastily but sincerely yours,

[illegible]
