Martinez, Cal., Sept. 20, 1907.
Dear Mr. Colby:
I inclose a copy of our report. I forgot to ask you theother day about what the resolutions should be but I think I have gotthe main point. It was sent to Secretary Garfield last Saturday.I think we had better have quite a number of this report with theother papers printed and scattered where they will do most good.
Drop me a line occasionally and let me hear how things aregoing. In particular I think it important to have the Mazamas act with us. Send them a copy of our report as soon as possible as it is getting a little late. I think I told you that Phelan's brief was filed in the Secretary's Office, Washington, September 14th.
Would it not be well to have a few typewritten copies made if theprinted ones should be delayed. If so, send me a few. We muststrike quick and hard now. J.M.
