J.M.O. Menard to McArdle, May 27, 1905

Mr. H. A. McArdle

San Antonio Tex.

Dear Sir:

Your letter of the 26th inst has been

sent to me by my wife who is absent.

I told my daughter to hunt up the Sherman

Scrap book & copy the piece of Poetry

in regard to the glove & I will send

it to you as soon as she sends it to me.

My wife's recollection of the "Flag" is that

it was pale blue ground with blue silk

fringe, but she is not sure. Mrs.

W. S. Kendall[,] her sister, has a description

that says the ground was white with

a gold fringe, [and] from what I have seen

of the remains of the Flag, I am inclined

to believe that Mrs. Kendalls description

is Correct. When you go to Austin

you might look at the Flag in the

case in [the] Insurance Commissioners room

& form some idea of it yourself. I think

that would be the best way to settle it.
