I suggest that you get your data as
to the amount of money you will
spend on this road, condition of the
road, its length, available materials
for road building, and other pertinent
matters, in shape so that they can be
submitted to the board. This is to be
strictly a business meeting and it will
not be. necessary for you to have a
big delegation there. The truth is,
the larger the delegation the less
amount of good is accomplished.
I called the' meeting to be held in
Jacksonville for the reason that I
