R[obert] U[nderwood] Johnson
May 25th, 1891.
My dear Muir:-
Thanks loud and deep for the inclosures with your letter of the 18th of May. I hope you are by this time in the King’s River Canon. I have at once written to Secretary noble inclosing your sketch-map, and recommending the consideration of a new park on these lines. I also mentioned to him Mr. Moore’s offer.
Very Sincerely yours
R. U. Johnson.
John Muir, Esq.
P.S. Oh, I am forgetting your nice letter about copyright, my
poem, &c. Your appreciation is worth having and I thank you for it. Literary men have to stand by each other in this country and be audience and inspiration to each other. What I wish to see is a book by John Muir. I suspect him of verse, too.
… Union Square, New York
