Letter from Gifford Pinchot to Theodore Roosevelt

Gifford Pinchot gives his feedback on President Theodore Roosevelt's update on the progress in land use since the Newlands Reclamation Act was passed four years ago. More than a million acres of land have been laid out for irrigation projects. Canals and ditches have been dug, employing many. The Forest Service, the Reclamation Service, and Roosevelt's administration realize that the prosperity of citizens in those areas relies on the preservation of natural resources and the creation of forest preserves.
