The senior class invites you to give commencement address June 13. Honorarium two hundred dollars. Hope you can accept. Colonel Roosevelt and several of the governors will be in the city on occasion of the semi-centennial statehood celebration. Hope to make it a great patriotic occasion. Will be glad to receive acceptance subject to approval by the federal department of war.
