[letterhead]2is wanted. But am going to get some more views and will send them to you.Recently I made a two months exploration trip down the Uruguay river looking for this timber. It occurs in areas ranging in size from one acre to something like 60 thousand acres. So far as could be ascertained it is the same Araucaria of several hundred acres, widely dispersed trees of more than five feet in diameter.The thick forests have a habit of ending suddenly without any apparent reason, even a small creek marking the boundary between forest and no forest.I shall be very glad to get a copy of your account of your last trip.If there is anything special you would05230
