Co.,: traveling passenger agen, had been sent with us and facilitated things all along the line. Going up the hill to Inspiration Pt. we in the second stage walked a good deal: Schroter, Paulsen, [?Dachinowski], Skottsberg, etc collecting. We stopped so much that it fell dark after Chinquapin and we drove into Wawona about 7:15. Next am. up to Big Trees in same way. Schroter took off his hat and waved it wildly in sight of the great giants. We spent ::::::::: Sept. 8, 1913 all day in the Grove, the party collecting and photographing and looking at the trees. (Baxter is still the photog. at the Big Tree Cabin). To my dismay the park authorities are clearing out the brush clean and trimming up little fir trees from below like specimen trees on a lawn! It is terible. We saw Major Littlebrant in Yosemite. He seemed delightful; was most kind in offering help and animals; and asked for suggestions regarding the care of the park. So I have written him about this matter. I saw no Abies magnifica in association with Sequoia gigantea in Mariposa Grove!!
