In this letter, Hitchcock effectively wrote the provisions to the bill that would go before Congress approving an Indian Territory Exhibit at the St. Louis World's Fair Exposition, in part: "I have to invite your attention to the fact that no provision has yet been made by Congress for an exhibit of the resources of the Indian Territory at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition to be held in St. Louis in 1904. This Territory which now has a population of 392,060, is growing in importance..." Written to Rep. J.A. Tawney, Chairman, Committee on Industrial Arts and Expositions. Natural folds; page one is evenly toned and has a small smudge near the right margin. Very good(-) condition.

Comments: A fine and rare World's Fair item by the first American Ambassador to Russia, U.S. Secretary of the Interior, and close friend of Theodore Roosevelt.

You've got yourself one happy customer at this end, folks. I've been looking for another copy of "West of the Indus" for nearly twenty years (I know, it's such a cultural wasteland out here in the provinces), and I never expected to find one with a dust jacket. I am amazed. Thank you so much. I've enjoyed many books over the years, but this one has always been one of my favorites. Now if I can just figure out how to share it with my friends without losing it... - Paul B.
