THE WHITE HOUSE
April 27, 1908.
My dear Mr. Muir:
I have your letter of the 21st. Do not run down those men too much. Benjamin Ide Wheeler and other good fellows among them. I am trying to see if we can not leave the things on the line that you indicate - that is, damming Lake Eleanor and letting San Francisco depend for a generation or so upon that and the Tuolumne tributaries. But of course I must see that San Francisco has an adequate water supply.
With regard, believe me,
Mr. John Muir,
Washington [D. C.]
