  • January 6, 1931 – Ethel Dreier to JSA

Dear Mr. Apperson,

Some of your Christmas greens are still on my desk, and I cannot tell you how welcome they were and how much appreciated by us all.

I have been much interested to receive your communications about the Hewitt bill. I am assured that it certainly will pass, by some of our friends here who are interested in the Adirondacks, but they hope (& I believe Mr. Hopkins’s promise) that the blue line shall be so greatly extended that it will take in all of the Adirondacks and Catskill region (I understand Lake George as well) and therefore prevent any cutting of trees in the parks of the Forest Preserve counties that are at all near the mountains. What this means, I don’t know. Some of the League of Women Voters with whom I have talked have written to find out just where the blue line would be moved to, and what guarantee we would have of its being done. In understand that a concurrent resolution was promised to the member who interviewed Mr. Hopkins. Do you know anything about this proposal?

I lunched with the Goldmarks the other day. They are militant on the subject and we hope to rouse some sentiment here.
