Colby,302 Mills Bldg.,San Francisco, Cal.Dear Mr. Colby:-I thank you for the sketch of the territory desirable as an addition to the General Grant and Sequoia National Parks, and for your information on the king's River carriage road and the trail from the canyon up Copper Creek and down to Tehipite.I noticed in the Chronicle a few days ago a revival of the Blue Lakes scheme for & water supply for San Francisco. What do you know of this new company?
