[Robert Underwood] Johnson
Martinez Feb 27, 1896
My dear Johnson,
I read & burned your Capital editorial on Yosemite. It is only though the growing & multiplying interest of the rising generation of Californians that I see ground for hope for recession or better management. I suppose you have the last Sierra Club Bulletin containing me address on Yo. [Yosemite] & Park affairs, published this month. If not I’ll send you a copy.
I’m pegging at that Alaska Dog Story & Glacier Adventures I promised. When is the Alaska Trip to be published. Next year I hope to have a little Alaska book & shall need these articles in it.
Alfred Russell Wallace, Darwins friend & coworker in a letter to a friend in the Cal; [California] Academy of Science gives extravagant praise to my “Mountains of Cal [California]” The J. P. I clippings may amuse you, our necktieless friend who might well have a long one with a noose.
Ever yours cordially
