[William] Colby


Martinez Feb. 10, 1910—.Dear Mr Colby.I think the dinner part of the Club meeting is the only good part. Go ahead with it.Im sorry the meeting is to be at night. I suppose it can't be helped. I have taken cold again while away & dont know at present whether I can be with you even at the dinner. It looks like grip.I'm going to write again to Mr Ballinger & the President We must keep the protests flying or we will loose in great part what we have gained. All the more now that Ballinger is under so hot a fire.FaithfullyJohn Muir
