J M.-2-I have known both Mr. Kent and Mr. Gushing for twenty-five years. They are gentlemen; are men of taste, and lovers of nature, and I feel sure that they will handle this tract of land in such a way as to make it a source of great attraction to the residents of the state and to tourists. The new Hotel St. Francis, in wnlch I am personally interested, has agreed to assist them in recommending tourists to take this short and beautiful trip, and I believe that the "Muir Woods" will become one of the great sources of attraction in this state.I do not know that you remember me very well as we have not met for years, but beg leave to recall to your attention the fact that we passed a pleasant winter together in the University Club.Hoping to get a favorable response at your early convenience, I remain,Yours truly,[illegible]03654
