Chairman Flood Celebration

Dear Sirs--

I have two sisters living in Johnstown. If they have not entered my name for the Flood celebration, will you please enter it?

I lived in Johnstown before I was married and I was there in 1889, lost my grandparents in the Flood. My name was Slater before marriage.

My sister said she would have some literature sent to me. Have not rec'd any except a clipping from the Tribune, which my nephew owns.

When you send information, please send me the cost involved and I will remit a check. Thank you.

Ethel S. Hartel
