My dear Mr. Woodward:
I have your telegram of January ;
31st in which you set out resolutions;
adopted at a recent meeting of the
City Council of Payette, relative to j
good roads matters. Responding
thereto will say that I have at all
times favored the appropriation of
irge sums of money by the Congress
.or the construction of good roads
and highways. I was instrumental in
bringing about the appropriation of
more than $200,000,000 last year
I am, and at all times have been, of
the opinion that good roads are vit
ally necessary to the development of I
• Idaho and the well-being of her peo
pie as well as the people throughout
the West generally. I shall continue
to do all that lies in my power to
bring about the enactment of legis'a
tion by which large appropriation«
will bo made from the Federal trea
in building
sury, to be expended
With kind regards and best wishes
I am.
Very sincerely yours,
