About Edna’s Birthday
Editor staples: - - —
f>enr Sir: * / " <*
1 notice in "the Herald, of which i
have a -ample copy sunt to pie by out*
of your readers, that Edna is to shave
golden anniversary. Surely, you have
many readers to draw letters from,
I liope you have a good response.
1 wus~ut Edna very soon after she
was horm At that time she was just a
lot of sand and senna poajls, with the
railroad ties and rails lying on the
grass' ia matiy places, so to 'si>eak, quite
a ciit in Edna,-some.3-feet ifeep, as 1
J. W. Allen was flrsbdr.v goods store,
-Gideon Egg and hisMiartner the first
froeery store. In going to- Edna we
would leave Texana reacFat old XavU
dad and strike across tlif Dry (Seek
l>w»irie~-iio wire fences in those days.
*.W ai laiy :T years of age I was down
in the old town of Iudianola in 1870.
it was to me a v$ry beautiful city
\yifh its sea slnul streets and. magni-
Hcient flowers of. Oleanders and* other,
tropicayhtgmrs of all descriptions, Hut'
swept away In 1873, iff}
remember right, and Was wrecked total
ly In 1870. Port Lavaca, several Utiles
above, it, was‘sopie town also, but
Indtauola kllUnl it just as Edna killed
old Texana. - —v; .
I remember when father Use to go to
Texqua to attend lo business and dis,
trlet court. Hoyt* lie dreaded the black
mu (pi But hp "passed oil" before /Edna
arrived, so he never had the pleasure
of seeing the city of sand and prairie.
I would like to attend your celebra-
tion, but-guess I will be too far oft, but
