      TR continued the Homestead policy of the past, but he didn't give away
      public lands in general. He thought national parks, forest reserves,
      and the like were good uses for public lands. The chapters in W.H.
      Harbaugh's biography will tell you about TR's conservation policies.

      Best wishes from Oyster Bay,
