2013 Kalorama Road N.W. Washington D.C.13 March 1910.My dear Mr. Muir, I was glad to have yours of9th ult. recalling so many pleasant recollections of our delightful trip. I like to believe that we did good work, and told the truth and nothing but the truth in our report. Since that date there has been much politics mingled with forest conservation, and the struggle now in progress in Congress over the Ballinger-Pinchot matter is not helping the cause. The report on Hetch Hetchy matter, from what I have seen of it in the newspapers, will go far to prevent its desecration .I should delight to have a good long talk with you on the subject, but have no present plan to revisit the Pacific Coast. With sincere regardsYours very truly,[Illegible]04727
