J.M. 2.on that point.May I repeat that the object of holding your article on Alaska three years was for the purpose of getting illustrations for it, and as further illustration of our good faith may we say that we sent with our Mr. Drake an artist of the same name on the Alaska trip, but our enterprise came to naught. I trust you will no longer regard this as a slight or as indifference to you.Thank you for your appreciative words about my book.I see a good deal of Tesla these days, and though he is not looking very well he is in high spirits.This letter is delayed a week by reason of my absence in Washington, where I tried to get a chance at the President on the forestry question but found him engaged on other business. I hope to write to him before long.
