Dear Mr. Muir:-
I have met the Assemblymen and Senators elect from Southern California, and have talked with a number of them about the propriety of the State receding to the United States Government the Yosemite Valley, thus placing the entire Yosemite National Park in the control of the National Government. I do not believe there will be any difficulty in having this brought about in the Legislature this winter, if a who Wing is made by the Sierra Club, of the great advantage it would be to the State in general. I hope you will formulate some plan of action and have presented to the Legislature early in its session.
