[end printed letterhead] Gentlemen: The American Eugenics Society is planning a public educational campaign based upon scientific findings of such matters as pertain to humanity's betterment. There is no place where the public can be met and dealt with to greater advantage along this line than at the fairs. We are therefore requesting you for particulars regarding space for the exhibit which is a part of the educational plan. The exhibit is under canvas and requires a space 30x30 feet with also a power connection of 60 cycle 110 volt current for running a pair of small motors. We have in the past exhibited side by side with the Public Health Department, the Red Cross and others of like character, and like these have paid no ground rent because, we sell nothing and receive nothing, the whole is for the benefit and happiness of humanity and is supported exclusively by charity. Do you feel that you can also be charitable for so great and good a cause and contribute the needed space for our use? Respectfully yours, Field Secretary. CP: F
