R. U. JOHNSON,
C. C. BUEL,
John Muir, Esq. A. [illegible]
My dear Muir:-
I thought of you the other day when hearing of the death of your friend Benoni Irwin, which was shockingly sudden.
I am very glad to hear that you are again with the Commission. As I wrote to Prof. Sargent, I wrote to Hoke Smith asking him to call the President's attention to the Montana Reserve before he (Smith) left office, and I have since written to the President on the subject. I shall now turn my attention to Mr. Francis, the new Secretary of the interior, with a view to begging an interview with him when he comes to New York.
I have just come back from the Maine coast, and am in excellent health.
I noticed the burning of the Stoneman house.
I wonder if you read of John P. Irish's speech at the Indianapolis Convention, in which he interrupted his glowingeulogy of Cleveland with a tremendous sneeze.
