Miss Anne Whitney, The Charlesgate, Boston, Mass.

My dear Miss Whitney:

A copy of the latest report of the Society, entitled "Forestry in New Hampshire", has been sent to you, in which on page 26 we are very much pleased to print your letter relative to the Shelburne road.

It gives me very great pleasure to tell you that, in cooperation with Mr. Philbrook, the road has now been cleared up on both sides, and all the debris removed. I saw Mr. Philbrook's son the other day in the office of your cousin, Mr. Charles Stone, and he tells me that it looks [deletion: very] [in pencil: [remarkably]] well.

Furthermore, we are introducing into the Legislature in Concord which is now in session, a bill which prohibits leaving slash of any kind along the highways as a fire menace.

Your kind interest, therefore, is productive of good result in two directions:

First, in securing the clearing up of the road.

Second, in the attempt at legislation in Concord.

I believe that we shall succeed in securing the law, and that it will be a permanent benefit to New Hampshire,

Miss Anne Whitney --2

during the years to come. Please accept my earnest thanks and congratulations.

I earnestly hope that you are as well as when I saw you last summer. I shall long remember the charming visit at your place.

With kindest regards, I am, Very truly yours,

[signed] Phillip W. Ayres
