[postmark: WEST SOMERVILLE FEB 22 6-PM 1909 MASS.] Miss Anne Whitney The Charlesgate Boston Massachusetts. Tufts College, Mass. February 22. 1909. Dear Miss Whitney: I am sending to you by this same mail the brief for the A.M.C. on the Hetch Hetchy matter, which shows how the Club is able to exert a strong influence in public matters even at a long distance from New England. More as a curiosity than for any better reason, I have subjoined two papers in re Colorado Slate Co. that are lying upon my desk unavailed. of. I do not expect that you will fill out and in hot haste forward the blue application blank, but I included it with the yellow (!) statement. Will you take its complexion as appropriate to Mr. Bates' somewhat flamboyant diction, or as prophetic of the gold that awaits the faithful investor? What a beautiful holiday this is, as is becoming the anniversary of one who never was regarded as a possible candidate for any Ananias Club of his day! Mrs. Fay joins me in cordial greetings. Yours sincerely Charles E. Fay.
