[A]Martinez, Nov. 19, 1902Mr C. S. NewhallFrenso, Cal.My dear sir:I thank you for your letter on the Boole [illegible] Tree Though not the largest, it is one of the largest of the living trees, & should be saved if possible In looking over the notes of my several exploring trips in the Kings River Sequoia region I find that this Boole tree is not a first discovery. I saw it & measured & described it in the autumn of 1877 - that is 25 yrs ago. It then was named Hugh Miller The salvation of the Converse Basin groves,is however, vastly more important. They are now being rapidly & utterly destroyed-
