Description:

Letter with "The Santa Gertrudis Journal" letter head reads: " Roger B. Letz, Publisher P. O. Box 2386 Fort Worth, Texas August 12, 1969 Mr.. Walter W. Cardwell, Jr. Box 1018 Lockhart, Texas Dear Walter: Here are the layouts we discussed yesterday. The September ad has been sent to Hilmar. I found a good picture of Walter Hellyer. Many thanks for your efforts in my behalf on this matter and I will try my best to help you as time goes by. Should you want me to meet with you and Hilmar at the ranch I will be happy to do so. I have in mind doing a story on the cattle Hilmar has sold that are on feed at Eagle Lake and in turn made into barbecue for a man in El Campo. These are his personal cattle. We have 47 students for the school of knowledge at Valley Mills, from six states and Mexico, a turn out that is much better than we expected. Looks like this will be a successful venture. Sincerely yours, [signed] Roger Roger B. Letz RBL/mm Encs.".
