[illegible]

I have yours of June 29, and reply at once. I will be in [illegible] as I now expect, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, July [illegible] and 11. Not later than Wednesday of the following week I expect to leave for my summer home at Eagles More, and it is now probable that I will have to spend Monday, the 13th, if not Tuesday, the 14th, to New York I will make every effort to be home on the 14th, and it would be a great pleasure to see you at any time.
I think a concerted effort to upset the San Francisco Hetch-Hetchy ignominy will at least call national attention to the wrong, and since I wrote you before, much progress has been made toward securing a union Of forces among various associations which could be expected to do something in this respect.

Yours truly,
JHM/JMW - ACA [ILLEGIBLE]
To Dr. William F. Bade, President
c/o Rev. F. W. Stengel,
70 Church St.,
Bethlehem, Pa.
