glad of recog.[illegible] of my forestry work
Martinez June 19, 1907
Dear Mr Lukens
I thank you for the clippings which show that the few words of appreciation of your long earnest faithful forest work under difficulties natural & unnatural have done good in bringing that work into better light though of course your own conscience & the blessed trees themselves speaking louder, ever louder as the years go bye are all a good man needs in the long run. I must also thank you again & Mrs Lukens & her sister & Helen & Mr Gant &
speaks of the good time at our house 1907
blessed charming Lottie & Ralph for the royal good time you gave me.
Indeed most everybody in your town & Los Angeles I met were wondrous friendly & kind though I was only a stranger to most.
Helen & I will be delighted to welcome you all at our home & I am ever faithfully yours
