Martinez, Sep. 21, 1902

My dear Johnson:

Many thanks for your plan for Yosemite trip with the President, & for encouraging suggestions for, books, stories etc. Should the President invite me I'll go & preach recession & forestry like-, like a Century Editor. I think I'll have to write a little article about that Big Tree anyhow for I get no end of inquiring letters about it & I want to have done with it. Doubtless you have my letter ere this. There is no gorge gulch or gouge "finer than Yosemite" that I know of, but many well worth seeing & telling each with its own wonders I suppose an annual story book would be a good thing hard to do. I have no end of book plans. The Tullys are coming to visit us again soon.

With best wishes ever yours John Muir


Martinez [Calif.]
