of one another and those things generally which will stimulate
self-government. We can afford to give investors assurance that
the Constitution and laws of Texas seek to protect every honest dollar
honestly invested, no matter from whence it comes. We can afford
to encourage investment of capital in developing the rich resources
of our state, not by exemption laws, nor special favors, but by giving
assurance that the law will protect the honest investor who is lawabiding
and in good faith seeks to observe the law. Assure labor
that it will be protected in all its just demands upon organized
capital, and protect organized capital in legitimate uses and development
from the vengeance of predatory politicians; abolish all useless
offices and placed and create no new ones not essential to the
public good. I sincerely hope the session of the Legislature will be
pleasant and agreeable to its members, as brief as possible to dispose
of the necessary public business; and in your sojourn in Austin may
inspire you with a good opinion of its splendid citizenship; and you
take home with you, at your adjournment, the good will of all its
citizens, and have the plaudits of approval of the people throughout
the entire state.
