[William] Colby


Martinez, Nov, 2/08Dear Mr Colby,I've gone carefully over this stunning big stick article of yours, & have made, or rather suggested a few changes. which I think you will approve. My aim has been to tone down a few of the most extreme statemen[ts?] cut out redundancies & make the argument clos[es?] a litter clearer & perhaps more directly telling. But these changes are offered only as suggestions to be approved or rejected as seems best to you.I believe we'll lick the park plunderersEver yours faithfullyJohn Muir
