TO THE MEMBERS AND NON MEMBERS OF THE FIFTH AVENUE ASSOCIATION, INC.:

[[underlined]] SUBJECT: "NAVY DAY", FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1922. [[/underlined]]

The Navy League of the United States will inaugurate the celebration throughout the nation of "Navy Day" on October 27th. The purpose of this celebration is to keep before the people the vital part the Navy has played in making and keeping us a great, free and united nation; and to emphasize the value of the present "Treaty Navy" to the maintenance of every peaceful interest and activity of the national life at home and abroad.

The Governors of most of the states have assured the League of their official support, and many of them have offered to act as State Chairman for "Navy Day". The entire United States Navy will take part in the celebration, and the battleships of the Atlantic Fleet will be thrown open to the public, off Riverside Drive, from 9 A.M. to sundown on "Navy Day."

In view of this nation-wide celebration, the members of our Association are invited to participate in making the occasion a success by decorating their places and by a general display of the American Colors of the American flag on "Navy Day", Friday, October 27th.

Anticipating your usual cooperation, I am,

Very truly yours,

Thomas W. Hughes,
Secretary.
