Martinez, Nov. 28. 1901
Mr Geo. W. Stewart
Pres Mt Whitney Club.
I am very sorry that lack of personal knowledge of the matter referred to in Congressman Needham's telegram to you Nov. 21st makes me useless as a giver of the reasons for the retention of Captain Andrews which the President requires.
As far as I know all the army officers who have been detailed as Park Superintendents have done their duty faithfully & with admirable results.
Last spring, I was delighted to see that by means of trails & an excellent road not only the Grant Forests of the Kaweah but the whole park & the grand Kings & Kern river regions were being rapidly made accessible. With this work & the aims of your Club in general I am in hearty accord & ready to render any assistance in my power. with best wishes, & hoping I'll not be missed among so many who know the facts as to Captain Andrews work, I am
very truly yours
