John Muir


[Robert Underwood] Johnson


[in margin: [illegible] J] Martinez, Dec 30, 1908

Dear Mr Johnson:

This last letter of yours is capital. Go to Washington as often as the grand cause requires & I will bear all the expense I would have gone myself were I not a prisoner here held by a miserable bronchial cold or Grippe, the same as nearly ended my life journey last winter.

Good luck, Good New Year to you all. Faithfully

John Muir
