   When Henry Ford was accumulating real estate in Sudbury in conjunction with his Wayside Inn project, he bought a piece of   land on Nobscott next to ours. My father wrote him, saying that   he could have our acreage for two Lincolns and a Ford. Henry never replied and probably never saw the letter. His agents had    no interest in any land acquisition that did not involve a sub-   stantial commission for themselves; consequently nothing ever  came of the offer. Then, a few years later, the Boy Scouts estab-lished a camp on Nobscott. As some of their land abutted ours,  we decided to present them with the controversial parcel and     thus solve the problem once and for all.
