I shall be very glad to prepare an article on the Government parks & reservations in accordance with your flattering request, if I can manage it in time to be of use. I am very busy at present writing for the reserves in the S.F. newspapers, & I make slow progress, the fight in the west is very bitter. Beds of lies are growing up thicker & taller than the redwood forests, & cutting them down seems an endless task.
But I trust we'll win yet.
With thanks for the offer of your pages
I am truly Yours
