Texas State Association of Architects Minutes and Proceedings
little anecote. Many years ago an old sea Captain, who is still sailing into the port of Galveston, was on a voyage from England to said port in command of an English Steamer and Crew; said commander being a plain unassum-ing but a noble fellow, was address-ed one day by his first Officer in rather a pompous manner in the following language: "Captain, shall we give those passengers Irish potatoes ad libitum?" //underlined ad libitum //
The Captain looked at him and finally answered in his plain but firm manner. "No, give them to um plain filed as they are ac-customed to having um." Gentlemen, I have given you this paper plain filed and I hope you will be able to digest it without pepper or salt.
Moved that the thanks of this Association be tendered Architect Tobey for his paper so kindly read, and the address be spread upon the minutes, Carried.
Section 1 adopted as read.-
