Robinson is here and I’m trying to get Hoke Smith to give him an interview on the general subject of forest preservation. I an also recommending to him[(S.)?] to consult you and ward of Alameda & Charles S. Sargent, the authority on trees, with a [view?] to an early establishment of a policy of care for the forest preserve. Next winter if I am alive, there will be a move to repeal the grant of 1864 through an investigation. Thanks for your letters and information. I am keeping a file.Yours faithfully,R. N.
