i the fullest possible Investigation heie, we feel Justified in saying to;
and through you to the American people, that no such disaster nasi
overtaken any community or section In the history of our country. The
loss of life Is appalling and can never be accurately determined. It Is
estimated at 3,000 to 6,000 people. There Is not a house In Galveston I
that has not been Injured, while thousands have been destroyed. Thel
property loss represents accumulations of sixty years, and more mil-,
lions than can be safely stated. Under these conditions, with ten rlZTMrllTmT vZ
