[Robert Underwood] Johnson
Martinez, Oct. 28, 1896
My dear Johnson
I am home & settled after a long eventful summer I suppose ere this You have seen Sargent & know where we have been & the work we have done. I fondly hope that now something permanent will be done for the management of our grand woods.
The parks of the Sierra are in Capital order & if the authority of the military could be extended over the Sierra reservation it would be as well cared for as the parks without calling for a single soldier more or the expense of another dollar
I mean to tackle that old dog story soon
With best wishes
Ever Yours John Muir
