Concord Evening Monitor

Pleasant View, Concord, N. H., June 21, 1899. Editor Monitor:—I am pleased that the governor of our state has recommended an "Old Home Week" to be observed in this state, and believe it will prove a great bond of union to all natives of New Hampshire wherever they may be scattered throughout our land or in foreign lands. But I am in a dilemma—for if I were to send but one half the stamps you credit to my order it would overflow any hall in Concord.

I am deeply interested in Governor Rollins' suggestion that we have a large auditorium erected in this city to accommodate the thousands who may flock here for the annual "Old Home Week," and other special occasions. To assist in securing the success of this enterprise I hereby pledge to pay twelve hundred dollars ($1,200) toward the erection of the above named building.
