[letterhead]profit by a dedication of their StumpageMuir Woods is a jewel in a lovely setting. My next hope is to preserve the Setting.I am working on a plan for an immense game preserve and hope ultimately to see the Tamalpais region a great park and publicly owned water supply.When I was younger and full of fight I dreamed of a comparatively decent Chicago. After ten years struggle a few of us brought it about. In theory and out of Experience I am an optimist and a socialist. I know the dreams we have will come true and then men will learn to love nature. All I fear is that it may be too late.YoursWilliam Kent
