Dear Sir or Madam;
I have started my petition for the "First National Wild Seed Harvest" which would take place in our national parks and forests; collecting wild seeds from the seed bearing trees; paid for by the Federal Government; a brilliant idea; by one Kyrle Frying as the founder of the "Sons of New Philadelphia"; a democratic grass roots organization of which I am the secretary.
This project is thus of one real agenda: that of having people put to work as added to the workforce of the Rangers and other Park Employees by taking their places as harvesters of our seed - bearing trees; especially the native hardwoods and fruit bearing trees.
These employed workers in the National Works Project would earn $21.60 a pound for all collected seeds in the Harvest; and would thus make a living wage; in the Big Tent we would build in every National Park that participated in the Johnny Appleseed Project. All would live together and work in three month shifts; thus the regional goals would rotate for planting and harvesting; year round.

Sons of the New Philadelphia
By having young and old out in our National Parks and Forests we can employ Millions soon and Thousands Now; in America To Work; the National Work Projects itself having the Ideal of Honest Work for an Honest Living.
Having our volunteer workers collecting wild seeds from the seed bearing trees; and then paid by weight for the seeds collected thus makes it cost effective; $21.60 a pound for all wild seeds collected in this First Harvest paid for by the Federal Government; a brillinat idea; by one Kyrle Frying as the founder of the "Sons of New Philadelphia"; a democratic grass roots organization of which I am the secretary.
This petition would start the first National Works Project by having volunteers come out to works in the forest and parks harvesting wild seeds; for 8 dollars an hour.
In the name of that first American Saint: Johnny Appleseed; our Ideal is "God's Grace: the National Reforestation Project: Creating the Future for the Next Generation"
