Dear Sir:

I am writing an article on the Grand Canyon for the Century mag. and would like to see its winter garb and from the viewpoints on the branch railroad. I spent a few days on its rim and at the bottom of it, going in by way of Flagstaff before the branch R.R. was built. Can you furnish passes, and greatly oblige,

Yours truly,
J. M.02890
