Mr. E. J. Anderaon
My dear fir: May I urge that you
take up the "Buy a Hale of Cotton"
movement? 1 am quite certain that
ypur cltliena will on receiving the
auggettlon rally to the plan enthual-
HKflcally. The aueceaa of the plan meant the
p u rebate of all Texaa cotton from
far mem who are forced to eell. If we
nrrompllnh that the Texna Ranker
and nierrhanta will be able to finance
the reat and a market will toon be
eetahliahed. TexaB cannot afford to
let (hit year'a cotton crop be told
for tlx and seven centt. The atate
would not recover from the evil effect
of doing an for aeveral yeara.
The Houaton Pott la thoroughly
dlalntereated In thla beyond a patriot-
ic desire to Inspire the wldeat poaal-
bte lntereat. The performance of this
duty requlrea the aaalstanr of all
Please accept my exprsslon of ap-
preciation or the value of your co-
operation In giving the widest potal-
ble publicity to thla plan
