"Yours recd. Of course I know of you & your wonderful mountain climbing feats, but I have not yet had a chance to read your books. But I shall, as I am expecially interested in that kind of literature. Nearly every year I read a book of travels in S.A. ... I do not suppose Henry Ford saw your letters or that he would have known who you were had he seen them ... I think if you were to send a copy of one of your books to Mrs. Ford, 66 Edison Ave., Detroit, & tell her who you are & your lecture plans &c. she might call Mr. Ford's attention to it ... He has been wonderfully kind to me because he likes my books & loves the birds. Hoping you may gain his attention and interest ..."
