- March 5, 1930 – JSA to Ovid Baker (Executive Secretary – American Forestry Association – Washington) –
Dear Mr. Butler:
I have your letter of February 28th suggesting that I join the above Association. My time, however, is very limited and I would therefore rather be occupied with important projects and so there is before the Legislature of New York State at the present time a proposition to modify the Constitution of the state so as to allow commercial projects within the Adirondack forest, technically known as the State Forest Preserve. I should be glad to know what position your association will take in regard to this matter and should be glad to have you write me frankly on the subject.
Yours very truly,
