Mr.C. W. Nibley;-
I am just in receipt of yours of the 6th Inst. enclosing copy of Mr. Channel's letter in regard to the Burley yard.
I am surprised at you thinking I want to gobble everything up. I should think you would appreciate that it is your interest I am working for, not my own, as you are one of the big toads in the puddle of the Oregon Lumber Company. It does not make so much difference to me, but I thought it would be very essential to look after your interest and seeing that I would be the means of spending nearly a million dollars to help boon, that part of the country, I thought the Oregon Lumber Company should be entity led to a sharp of the trade, but if the yards there will on-ly give a small portion of their trade in return for the boon we hope to encourage, I will feel satisfied, as far as the Oregon Lumber Company In concerned, if you will feel in doing so I am protecting your interest in the Oregon Lumber Company, as you know I am as much interested in you as I am in myself. Yours respectfully, AF-DE
