THE GOVERNOR'S COMMISSION
FOR
CELEBRATION OF THE 250TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE INCORPORATION OF
BATH, NORTH CAROLINA
B. A. BROOKS, Mayor

EDMUND H. HARDING. CHM.
WASHINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA

July 22, 1955

Mrs. Inglis Fletcher
Bandon Plantation
Edenton, N. C.

Dear Mrs. Fletcher:

We all hope that your tooth is better. We were sorry that you could not be at our meeting. We had a very enthusiastic meeting with many from Raleigh and other places attending.

I am going to use your suggestion about the framed picture on one side of the main stage for short episodes or tableaus, and I hope that you will be Queen Anne and instruct your Privy Council or Secretary of State to send to Bath a bell. I figure that the episode would take about 5 minutes.

We hope to have many distinguished persons to take part in this pageant, and of course nothing historical in this part of the country would be complete without you.

My best regards to Mr. Fletcher.
Sincerely yours,

Edmund H Harding [signature]
