[Robert Underwood] Johnson
Martinez, Aug. 2, 1912Dear Mr Johnson,Your letters of July 6th & 23d & 26th reached me only a day or two ago because I was away on a trip to the Giant forest of the Kaweah & Yosemite. I'm glad you are going to cool Canada after Owen's long dangerous illness.I had duplicate type written copies of my S. American & African notes made before leaving Los Angeles and I find that without a lot of good photographs suitable magazine articles cannot be got out of them at least in a reasonable time. Therefore I'm sorry to say Dont count on. I have three good photos of the Victoria Falls & a few rather poor ones of the Baobab, of the Amazon I have none worth anything as illustrations. I have written to friends in Para & Manaos to tryBancroft library
to obtain river & forest views for me at any cost Also to Buenos Aires & Victoria for Argentina & Chile views. Am promised a lot, but when I'll get them or what like they will be none can know Possibly views of Rio may be obtained in New York.As to the Freeman report here is all I have as yet seen of it.Your reply to the call is capital.Good luck to you on your Canada rest trip. Dont worry about those hot continents.Every faithfully yoursJohn MuirBancroft library
