[Richard Watson Gilder]
R.W. GILDER, EDITOR.
Mr. John Muir,
We purpose printing in an early number of The Century, from a number of prominent persons interested in the preservation of American forests, brief contributions, of from 200 to 500 words each, on the need of a thorough scientific and permanent system of forest management in the interest of the people and of posterity.
We shall be glad to have your opinion as to the necessity for such a system, and your judgment of the plan suggested by Prof. Sargent of Harvard, of which we inclose an outline.
Very truly yours,
Editor of The Century.
