All over Oregon this week, people of our Hlate aro writing to friends
ami acquaintances in the East, in.tho attempt to establish a friendly feel
ing for our section, ns a mighty finq pluce iu which to spend this year's
summer holidays. It occurred to mo in this connection, that you might
look with favor on coming out this way for your vacation, if I took the
liberty of calling It to your attention.
Oregon will take great pleasure in seeing you, ami I feci sure you will
take great pleasure in seeing Oregon. The summer months, which ore the
dog-dnys elsewhere in the universe, are the glory days with us.
It la curious to my mind that the traveler, touring for pleasure, so sel
dom comes to Oregon. The state hns many attractions in the way of fine
scenery, and the sports of road, field and stream.
Many easterners who pnsscil through on. the way from the Fair last year,
expressed surprise and pleasure at w hat they found here, ami urged us to
make Oregon more generally known as a Mecca for holiday seekers.
