had promised a nice article but it failed to "come out"I am going to take pains to find out the reason of this.Perhaps our efforts to take control of the Gov't reservations is not agreeable to some of out newspaper friends & they prefer to leave out a club whose members advocate Federal control for National parks & the aid & assistance if necessary of U. S. soldiers.I wrote a short article to the Century about 200 words, my views being "to take the control of national reservations entirely from the State Commissions & put them under proper Federal control with power to call in the Military when necessary"Suggested the Forestry board of Agricultural Dept & in[illegible] of appropriation needed to carry on their work so well begun, etc. etc.I have a little spare time now & will carefully overlook the table of altitudes of Pacific slope & try & get the Ms. in printers hands next week.Best regards for your familyVery trulyMark B.
