Mr. Herbert John -- 2             November 26, 1949

Then, too, there may be a goodly number of convention delegates from all parts of these United States, who may never again have the opportunity of witnessing an eleven-man War Canoe Race which is our main attraction or of tasting our style of baked salmon. At any rate it will be something entirely different in the way of celebrations, for those people who live inland in our America.

Hoping you every success in this, as well as any others in your relm of duties and also full success for the American Indians in the N.C.A.I.

Yours truly,


Earl M. Thomas, Adjutant
