Editor in making my contribution to the Hughes Arch i wish to express my sincere regard for Mexia a Friend and i Hopa Rny Friend or. Hughen and i have on a few things. You see he is a Radical Optimist and i am rather inclined to be conservative and believe in putting on the brakes at the pro per time and place. What differences of opinions or of methods we had had have Al ways been urged and settled in a most Friendly spirit. You 6r 1 would not a Fig for Man that had no opinions of his own and was not ready to contend for what he thought was right. 1 for one would not have or. Hughes anything but what he is. He does things and does them with a vim a generous Ness and a matter of fatness that is admirable. He is a Little inclined to be dictatorial on some subjects but amenable to sound and intelligent argument and Dis Cussion. If tiny one has the stamina of present that kind of an argument. It is Only narrow minded men that fall out with a Friend or anyone be cause they differ on any thing what Ever. Has not the other Man the same right to his opinion that you have to yours it is Only when the other fellow talks nonsense that you have a right to. Get a Little riled but not too much so. Every Man woman and child in Mexia should have the kindest and friendliest feeling towards j. K. Hughes and his family and i feel sure they do. The gift of the 12 acre Park should do this not to men Tion the Many other Large and Small things he has done for Mexia its institutions and business projects. He has been Here Only a few years. What have the balance of us done i believe this Arch shoud be built with Small contributions from every Man woman and child in Mexia. With this in View i make my contribution Only if you can not give More than five or ten cents give it. Let it be a Monument of affection and regard from the children and adults of moxie to j. K. Hughes moxie s Friend and Bene Factor.
