[William F.] Bade
[letterhead]July 30 - 10My dear Bade [diacritic]:That was a stunning editorial enclosed in yours of 22nd. Read it to Parsons & Mr. Forbes at lunch to day & they agreed with me that it was mighty effective - directly to the point & will do a world of good.I feel guilty in not writing to you sooner but I simply could not get time with the outing on my hands. I have been trying to carry two men's work & as a consequence have been forced to eliminate temporarily many things I should have done. I know you will appreciate & pardon my silence.We will settle the amount owing you06293
for [illegible] in [the?] Hetch Hetchy hearing as soon as you return & I hope the delay will not inconvenience you. Mr Farland writes that he has tackled Pinchot & the letter shows signs of weakening & seems to re[illegible]t having written [illegible] the letter of encouragement. Will secure copy of letter & send you Monday so you will be sure to have it.Just returned from a most glorious & successful outing this morning & mail is piled deep on my desk. Have many things to discuss with you I am looking forward to your return.SincerelyColby
1910 Jul 30
