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.".

Creator: unknown
Description: Letter with "The Santa Gertrudis Journal" letterhead reads: Roger B. Letz, Publisher P. O. Box 2386 Fort Worth, Texas 76101 August 10, 1970 Mr. Walter W. Cardwell, Jr. P. O. Box 1018 Lockhart, Texas Dear Walter: Attached are two pictures each of four of your Pioneer Sale heifers, one picture of one of the heifers and four pictures of the sale bull. Also included is a suggested layout of a page ad, which includes all six pictures. You will need to fill in appropriate remarks about each animal under its picture. The promotion of these sale cattle could be done in any of the following ways. 1. Run the attached layout in both the September and October issues. 2. Increase the size to two pages to run in September, thereby making the pictures larger; run a follow up smaller ad of a half page in the October issue. 3. Do not run a picture of all of the heifers - use only one or two. We will need to have the layout, copy and pictures you want to use in September by August 20. Sincerely yours, [signed] Roger Roger B. Letz RBL/mm Encs."

Description: Letter with "The Santa Gertrudis Journal" letterhead reads: "Roger B. Letz, Publisher P. O. Box 2386 Fort Worth, Texas 76101 Phone (817) 336-3611 July 6, 1971 Mr. Hilmar Moore, Manager Mamie E. George Ranch Richmond, Texas 77469 Dear Hilmar: It will be the George Ranch time to be featured in the cooperative Polled advertising page in our August 1 issue. I would suggest using something like "Headquarters For Polled Cattle Breeders Since 1932". You might also include a description of what you have for sale and a sentence such as "watch for our all-polled offering in the Pioneer Sale". We have a number of pictures on hand that could be used. I am sending two for your consideration, a group of young bulls and one of a herd sire which I think is Husky George 100. Please let me know what your wishes are in regard to the ad and return the picture you want to use. Sincerely yours, [signed] Roger Roger B. Letz" .
