Detailed Product Description
California, California Historical Society, 1928. Pp 121-131. Staple bound softcover with foxing and wear with a partially detached cover. Very Good reading copy.

"This letter, written by William H. Brewer in 1862, to his friend George Jarvis Brush, Professor of Metallurgy at Yale University, is of historical importance, for it was a link in the chain of events that brought about the establishment of the United States Geological Survey. Many years later, Brewer told how this letter came to influence Clarence King to engage in geological survey work." - From the introduction.
