Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately!

Date: April 29, 1899
Creator: Cook, J. G., Jr.
Description: This is a letter from the Charles B. Moore Collection. It is written by J. G. Cook and is addressed to Linnet Moore. In this letter, Cook informs Linnet of the happenings in Burnet, TX. The news includes: a discussion about correspondences lost on the mail, details about a girls-only event held in town, a dialogue about how he and G. fixed the fortunes told by the fortune teller at the girls-only event, an update on when and where he has seen Lula Dalton and the rest of the girls in the club, news about the Jones family moving to Oklahoma, and a discussion about traveling out of Burnet. He closes the letter by noting that he is the same Jim Cook as Linnet has known,the same person she hoped he would be, and signs the letter a true friend.
