New Orleans Wholesalers Ow
to Visit Franklinton.
New Orleans, La., Oct. 16.
Editor, Era-Leader :
During the latter part of April ul
I visited Franklinton in company .11
with various Railroad officials and ol
was afforded the opportunity of mu
announcing the intended visit of to
New Orleans wholesalers, manu
facturers and bankers upon their inF
Fifth Annual Trade Extension I
Excursion, during November of ho
this year. arl
Since that time, and undeterred an
by talk of dull times, we have cu
been busily perfecting the details
of our trip all of which have now nt
practically been completed.
Our special train, composed of in
diner and standard sleepers, will
arrive at Franklinton on Satur- th
day Nov 14th at 2:20 p. m., and
depart the same day at 3:30 p. m. ON
The trip might best be termed
a crusade of acquaintance because ¢I
our party, headed by Mayor
Behrmnan of this city and upwards h,
of one hundred of our leading
bankers, wholesalers and manu- h,
facturers, carries no samples and
no orders are solicited. u
We are making the trip through tc
a territory close to New Orleans c
through the ties of commerce and u
friendship, with a view of becom
ing better friends with your busi. b
ness men and merchants, because B
we believe, that all things being a
equal, business follows friend m
ship and because it is the desire b
of this organization that its mene, C
bers be familiar with the needs
and requirements of the territory b
served by this market.
We will have with us our M. &
M. Bureau Band; representatives
of the press of New Orleans and
staff of photographers. The
Boosters special will be composed
of the most modern equipment. i
Telephonic communication is con
stantly maintained with New Or- i
leans. In addition to stenograhic
service, the train is equipped with
multigraph and mineograph and
a bulletin will be published daily
of events of interest at various
We assure you that we look
forward with great interest and
pleasure to our stay in your midst.
We ihope to have the privilege
of meeting your business people
and that the opportunity will
be afforded to exchange ideas
that will be of mutal benefit.
These trade excursions, partici
Spated in by our business men for
the past five years have been so
productive of good fellowsnip,
sympathetic understanding and
increased trade of good fellow
ship, that they have become one
of the leading features of our
work and looked forward to with
eagerness each year.
Feeling assured. in advance of
a cordial and sincere welcome at
the hands of your people and
g- ~ ,. best wishes.
Yours very truly,
