March 11, 1929 – JSA to Fred Smith

  • March 11, 1929 – JSA to Fred Smith (Lake George) –

Dear Mr. Smith:

I am sending you a copy of my letter of even date to Mr. MacDonald, knowing that your interest and my interest is always the same, so far as preserving the most valuable asset Lake George has, which is its wild beauty, particularly among the islands.

Would you be good enough to inquire from the people who are doing the work how serious it is, and if you think some temporary injunction should be issued restraining further operations, ask Andrew if necessary, to apply for such an injunction. Article 7, Section 7 of the constitution specifically states that the trees shall not be cut, removed or destroyed, and there can be no question what this means.

Cordially yours,
