[emblem of Universal Exposition]


(T. H.)

St. Louis, Mo., August 29, 1904.

Dear Sir:

This will be presented to you in person by Mr. Theodore Hardee, Assistant
to the Secretary, a representative of the Exposition, who visit your city for
a conference with you on the subject of "Texas Week" at the Louisiana Purchase

Governor Lanham has been requested to issue a proclamation announcing that
the week of September 11th has been designated as "Texas Week" and the splendid
showing made by Texas in this great International Exposition prompts me to suggest
that every loyal so of Texas who can conveniently do so, should lay aside his
regular avocation during that week and come to St. Louis to do honor to his
native state.

Mr. Hardee is empowered to arrange for a special day for your city during
"Texas Week". The railroads have granted round trip rates of about one cent per
mile from all Texas points.
Any courtesies shown Mr. Hardee will be appreciated.

Yours very truly,
[signed] D. R. Francis

TO His Honor the Mayor,
Fort Worth, Texas.
