She Wants Some Exposition Literature to Use on Her Papa

Ripon, Wis., April 2, 1901

Dear Sir -  I am a little girl about 8 years old and I am trying to coax my papa to take me to the fair this summer. Will you do me the favor to send some of your literature that I may show it to him and thus hope to bring him around to my way of thinking. Yours truly,  ___________________________
