Dear Mr. McQuesten:

Enclosed is a page from Sunday's New York Herald-Tribune Rotogravure Section which I thought you would like to have as a memento of your participation in opening the Rainbow Bridge.

This subject, in both pictorial and editorial form, is now in publication in newspapers in practically every American and Canadian community. Clippings from these papers are being forwarded regularly to M. Kaumeyer. If you would like copies from other papers for your personal records, I am sure that Mr. Kraumeyer will be pleased to forward them to you.

Also enclosed is an additional print on the opening which I thought you might like to have.

Cordially yours,

Herbert H. Foster
