Erminia T. Folsom to Annette Finnigan, 1912

There are just eight persons who have


become members of this local association


without a personal call from me; but the


time is coming, as it did a few days


ago, when the telephone will ring and


some one will say he wishes to become a


member. Austin may be the most


conservative place in the State, that is


one reason why it needs a strong asso-


ciation; its importance cannot be over


estimated as it is the capital and the


legislators breath[e] our atmosphere


and the University students are here.

            Say do you know what has


become of those Houston parties who


years ago were a committee to form


the College League for Texas? I mean


the committee appointed by Mrs. Park


when she was in Texas in 1909, I


think.

            Our president and family are to


spend a few days in Galveston during


the holidays; and of course Mr.


and Mrs. Walker would like to me[e]t


you and can stop in Houston either


on their way to Galveston, or on their


way back. They expect to leave


here Christmas night, which would


put them in Houston Thursday morn-


ing. Please let us know when
