ISSUED BY GOVERNOR,
Executive Office, Santa Fe, N. M.
"History, too often negligent, has
but grudgingly recognized the
wonderful and heroic efforts of the
early Spanish pioneers in the ex
ploration and colonization of the
great southwest; and believing that
the people of New Mexico, of all
the most vitally interested, should
lead in a public announcement of
their realization of the debt they
owe to the memory of those brave
pathfinders of nearly four cen
turies ago, and by a concerted
effort take what steps are proper
to preserve to posterity for all
time, by organization, by monu
ment and by enacted law, the tra
ditions, the memories and the
words of our first psoneers:
Now, therefore I, George Curry,
governor of the territory of New
Mexico, do hereby convoke, for
this purpose and to celebrate with
fitting exercise and ceremony the
historical deeds of the Spanish
pioneers, an assembly of the pa
triotic citizens of our country, to
meet in the city of albuquerque,
Wednesday, October 9th, 1907 at
10 o'clock a m."
