few days. Such a book like the forest themselves makes us live not only longer, our better lives. Your inscription to me has come at a time it is most acceptable, you will find I have had to warn off trespassers, as shown in the accompanying newspaper cutting. To have your approval - and your remembrance that I at one time did "the state some service" for forestry.- compensates greatly. Your Honorable mention will be preserved. with thankful care. Please accept my wishes of a Happy New Year to you and yours.Sincerely YoursJohn W. Noble.
