Dear Mr. Muir –
This letter which I enclose, speaks for itself. Is there anything which can be done to save these red-woods, especially by the road side? I have kept the letter, hoping you would be down, and we could talk it over. Imagine my feelings, when the clause in the game law to protect singing birds, struck out Meadow Larks. I think I wrote you the remark of one of the committee, “Meadow Larks [ain’t?] singin[g?]
birds; they just gull up out three notes”[!?] I wish you would write up that “gull up man”; but, after all, I suppose he is not to blame for having a dull soul – The country must be delightful now your way: it is in Santa Clara valley – Will you remember me kindly to your wife,
Emma A. Myrick
