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.
