    Peters writes to Curtis commending him for his letter to Dix Rowland who inquired about public campgrounds on Rainier. Curtis was against the idea because of the additional cost it would add to the park budget. Peters agrees, stating the campers are seeking more amenities than ever, which, in his view, can only be provided by the private campground but notes that the park is making provisions for the people occupying public campgrounds. Peters writes "The alleged camper out seems to be growing helpless unless he is furnished, free of charge, with wood, water, lights, toilets, and, in some cases none too rare, with wet nurse service. However, since it seems to be what the public wants it is up to the National Park Service, as the originator of the outdoor camping idea, to furnish these things..." Peters notes that plans are being made for additional camping services at Longmire, Paradise, and White River Camps. less
