March 12, 1930 – JSA to C. Everett Bacon (NYC)
Dear Mr. Bacon:
Since I forwarded you a copy of my letter of the 28th to Mr. Greeley, you might be interested in the view expressed by Mr. Houghton and my letter to him, copy of which I am attaching.
Since reforestation can be carried on anywhere in the State without amending the Constitution, it seems obvious that the proponents of the proposed amendment are seeking other privileges.
It would be very helpful if you could arouse the kind of interest in some of your clubs that would encourage them to analyze this attack on the Constitution fearlessly and fully before subscribing to such questionable procedure.
