- April 11, 1930 – D. W. Weed to Hon. Burton D. Edmond Assembly – Albany)
Dear Mr. Esmond:
Thank you for your letter of April 9th. I realize that you have to abide by your Party’s decision, and play the game according to the rules. The only thing for me to do, as a citizen, is to change my Party when I do not like their program.
With respect to the Brown Bill, Senator Brereton was given the opportunity to introduce this bill, but, I understand, owning to certain large interests in his district now owning land which it is proposed that the State take up, he felt it better politics not to introduce it. As a matter of fact, so far as I have been able to learn, none of the bills introduced in the Legislature, appropriating land at Lake George has ever been introduced by a Senator from that district or an Assemblyman from that county.
