R. U. JOHNSON,
C. C. BUEL,
Prof. Charles S. Sargent,
Chairman of the Forest Commission,
Dear Prof. Sargent:-
I am very glad indeed to have your note of the18th of September; and I am communicating at once with the Bacheller Syndicate, and shall write you their attitude as soon as I learn it.
I am still trying to get an interview with the new Secretary of the Interior with a view of pushing along the Montana reservation. I am asking him when he will next come to New York City, so I may see him personally. If he says he is not coming I shall write him fully.
I presume the President will take the matteriup as soon as he gets back to work. I wrote him very urgently about it just as Hoke Smith was going out.
