[Robert Underwood] Johnson
Martinez, Jan. 31, 1914Dear Johnson:I'm glad you are getting your fences repaired. Now the Hetch Hetchy battle is a thing of the past.I don't know anything about the lecture business here. The whole state is squirming with politics & the hoped for money to be got of the big canal show. The east, I should guess is far the better field.Your reminiscences of the great war generals I feel sure will prove most interesting and profitable. But apart from this what a world of literature is stored away in you and now to be
brought forth in these years of perfect freedom.As to my health you so kindly inquire for I have been confined to my room in the big house on the hill for more than a month all alone without secretary or stenographer. Grippe was the trouble am now getting better and hope to get some writing done.Anyhow dear Johnson I am ever your affectionate friend John Muir and also your sincere admirer.
