2)it should be brought before him, that he would do all that his position would permit.If this letter seems cold, pray excuse me. I am entirely with you in desiring Beauty spots to be reserved for the future. Upon the other side of the border (in Canada) this matter has been taken in hand seriously, and you will find upon enquiring that immense spaces have been reserved for the public enjoyment for ever and ever.Personally, I rejoice to know it. At present it is comparatively easy to make these reservations, but 20 years hence it may be impossible to do so.Very truly yours,Edward Whymper-J. Muir Esqr
