- October 14, 1931 – JSA to Belle Moskowitz –
My dear Mrs. Moskowitz:
No words can express the thrill I received a few moments ago over the telephone (when my doctor has me flat on my back), your telegram that Ex-Governor Smith would oppose the Tree Cutting Amendment No. 3.
It has been a long up hill effort to keep the fire on the right side burning but now I am sure we have a fine chance of winning a good fight for real conservation. With you and the Governor back of us we certainly ought to win.
Please accept my most sincere appreciation for your personal interest.
