Is Dependent Upon Your Prosperity
The Portland, Railw ay Light A Power C om pany have striven in the past and are striving
at present to eliminate and do away with that antagonistic feeling, that is so often present
between a railroad corporation and the general public.
It is the desire and intention of our company to cooperate in every way possible
with the farmers, merchants and general populace adjacent to our lines.
We wish to see you make a success of your farming, your dairying, poultry, stock or
fruit raising or such other business as you may be interested in. i f for nothing but purely
selfish reasons, we wish to see you prosper, for your prosperity means our prosperity, for
our interests are closely allied.
It is our intention, so for as our financial limitations will permit, to cooperate with
the farmers and growers along our lines, to help in the solving of their problems, and aid in
the experimental work that will ultimately increase the productivity of their lands.
We are heartily in accord with the energy that is now being put forth in the in
terests of the new hog raising industry, the formation of cattle clubs, the establishing of
canneries or cheese factories or any other community developments.
In the case of misunderstandings between our company and the public, we ask that
you come to us directly with your grievences and we will aim to rectify them, for we want
you to feel that we are your friends, as well as your railroad.
Wishing you the compliments of the holiday season and trusting that our future rela
tions may be to our mutual advantage, we remain,
Yours very sincerely,
Portland Railway, Light & Power Co.,
F- W. Hild, General Manager.
