- April 29, 1929 – JSA to Theodore Van Wyck Anthony, Newburgh, NY-
You certainly deserve commendation and congratulations for your successful fight on the naming of the Adirondack peaks, and those who have misbehaved in an effort to get peaks named for themselves will probably wait awhile and then try for a unanimous vote for the Regents or Committee on Geographical names, but before that happens, no doubt, you will have ample time for a much deserved rest in your famous retreat in the shadow of some of those peaks. Hope you can stop off and have a chat with me on your way home.
With best regards,
