A Third Letter to Tiza

Letter from Helen J. Stewart to her daughter Tiza, April 4, 1925
 
 
 
"Governor Scrugham of Nevada was here the other day and wants me to prepare my basket collection for the 1926 State Exposition and Rotary meeting from all over the United States.  My expenses and a salary for one of my own people to help me will be allowed.  Also the state will copyright my book and manuscript leaving me a good profit in the sale of my book for the Indian School.  Do you want to come and help me?"
