Notes and Documents
It is very appropriate that the name Fredonia was selected for
this lovely hotel. The people of this section have long been noted
for their hospitality as well as for independence and love of
freedom. From the earliest times, the site of this city has been
astride the natural gateway to the interior of Texas. Travelers
to Texas from the older sections of our country of the North and

of the Philosophical Society of Texas, that this city was suggested
as the site of the society's annual meeting. I hope we have shown
you a good time and made you feel welcome, and that you will
meet with us again sometime.
