Miss Anne Whitney, The Charlesgate, Boston, Mass test

Written from Peterboro N.H. October 17, 1912

My dear Miss Whitney:-

Please do not think me unmindful of your gracious hospitality in Shelbourne. An attempt which I hope will prove successful to prevent the advance of the Chestnut Bark disease in Southern New Hampshire, has kept me long in the woods, and I have been unable until this time to see the people in Gorham that I promised.

But I am going there on Nov. 4. after which I hope to be able to report

to you progress toward having that beautiful road made clear at least within the limits of the highway. I wish to express my great satisfaction in meeting you, and in learning your thought on important matter. Mrs. Ayres thanks you for the volume of poems, which she has looked over with much interest. Please accept my very kind regards and best wishes for your continued health. Sincerely yours, Philip W. Ayres

Letter from Philip W. Ayres, New Hampshire, to Anne Whitney, Boston, Massachusetts, 1912 October 17
