Dear Mr President

Here is a map showing relation of Hetch Hetchy Valley to the other important features of the Yosemite Park. Should further explanation be required making my presence in Washington desirable please let me know

Ever faithfully yours

Feb. 25, 1908.

The attached letter and map from Mr. John Muir, dated Feb. 15, 1908, relative to application of San Francisco for reservoir sites in Yosemite Natl. Park, seem to relate to papers already in the Secretary's private office; hence these papers should also be sent there.
