Included is one of No. 99, the bull which is scheduled to be used in the January ad, of which you have a layout. All photos are identified on the back. Hilmar was not here, but I called him and he said to go ahead without him being in the pictures. We are mailing the January issue early, so we need copy as soon as possible. Sincerely yours, [signed] Roger B. Letz RBL/mm."

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.".
