meeting of farmers truckers and busi

grown to be one of the staple crops
of this section and a big money crop
The entire croptgrovn in this section
last year did not begin to supply the
demand and the crop sold at good
prices throughout the season This
county should engage in cultivating
this crop to an extent tHat buyers will
be attracted to bid on and buy the
cars of tomafbes as they are loaded
as is done at Tyler Jacksonville Arp

Let every business man who an
possibly leave his buslne ss for an hour

Secretary Sterne of the Board of

Tyler Texas Dec 5tl 1910
Mr C A Sterne
Secretary Board ot Trade
Palestine Texas
Dear Sir Replying to your letter
of the 29th inclosing circular of meet
ing to be held Thursday December
For the benefit of those Interested
will advise that there were 789 cars
loads of tomatoes shipped this season
from Smith and Cherokee counties on
a basis of 875 crates to the car mak
ing a total of 690 5 crates and
making what we think a conservative
estimate of 60 cents per crate will
bring a net profit of 41422500 to be
distributed among the growers of
these counties and I feel assured
with the organization of an associa
tion for Anderson county the grow
ers will do equally as well and trust
that your efforts will be successful
Mr Cobb and myself will arrange
to attend and give you all assistance
Yours truly
