Wednesday a.m.

My dear Mr. Muir:_

We have the enemy on the run, but they are telegraphing here for reinforcements as you see by to-day's papers. The most important hearing of all takes place next Tuesday. I wish it were possible for you to go on.
Anyway a brief note from you to each member of the Public Lands Committee will do worlds of good. Only a line stating that you are sending a pamphlet which contains pertinent information that you rely on them to save the park from destructive invasion etc.
It ought to get off by mail immediately-__send down to Martinez by special messangers if necessary. I mail our pamplets tomorrow morning on the Overland Limited.
Keep all our friends to work on chairman Mondell. He has turned & now appears to be with us.
I enclose a list of the members of [this?] Committee

Sincerely

Wm E Colby
