Los Angeles, Cal., August 4, 1910.325 West Adams Street.Dear Mr. Colby:-Hope you had a fine time. I have been hard at work down here on another book and have made pretty fair progress.Here is a communication from the President of the National Conservation Congress requesting me to name five delegates. What do you think we had better do? Shall we send on delegates? If so, I wish you would propose names.I enclose a letter from President Ripley of the Santa Fe on the subject of a trolley along the rim of the Grand Canyon. I think with him that we should use our influence against the granting of permission by the government for such a scheme, as it might be the beginning of a series of schemes that we would have to fight in other national parks.I hope to see you within a week or two.Ever faithfully yours,^[ILLEGIBLE]To William E. Colby,302 Mills Building,San Francesco, Cal.
