November 6, 1929 – JSA to Gov. Roosevelt

  • November 6, 1929 – JSA to Governor Roosevelt (Executive Mansion, Albany)

Dear Governor:

May I suggest a meeting in your office between myself and Commissioner MacDonald, concerning the Paradise Bay land, before the Land Board approve further expenditures of the Forest Preserve funds?

I would be glad to come at any time or day you designate, and such a meeting therefore should not be objectionable from the standpoint of delaying action of the Land Board.

If it is agreeable to you, I would like to bring with me Dr. Irving Langmuir who was at one time a member of the Lake George Committee, and active in helping the various organizations to secure funds for the State to protect the land in question.

Very cordially yours,
