[Henry F.] Osborn


Martinez,Feb.8,1910My dear OsbornI'm delighted to get word of you after such a long blank palaeozoic silence- and to learn you are coming hither ere long-all of you I hopeSince a [illegible?]ailroad was built to the western boundary of the park Yosemite in accessible all the year. tho April and May are perhaps the best months. I'm glad you are in our Hetch Hetchy fight. "Christian up and smite them", is capitalLast week I was at the Los Angeles Saber-tooth Tiger beds, a wonderful lot of monuments that doubtless you will examine. Give my love to Mrs Osborn & the children,- he whole nestful I suppose full fledged and away.My Wing on Wing memories are warmly cherished & grow brighterwith the passing years. Pinchot seems to have lost his head in coaland timber conservation, & forgotten God and his handiwork. He hasbeen our worst enemy in our park fight. With warm regardsEver yoursJohn Muir04700
