Texas State Association of Architects Correspondence
We the members of a committee duly appointed by the Builders' Board of San Antonio, to confer with the Architects and Material Men of this city for the purpose of enlisting your assistance and co-operation with us in bettering and protecting our mutual inter- est and we present herewith a list of membership which we believe to be a majority of the reliable and trustworthy contractors of this city, and should you collectively or individually decide to assist us in our efforts to elevate the standard of building and make our calling an honorable one, we in turn will use all legitimate and honorable means to assist you and advance your interest. We don't ask nor expect anything at your hands that you cannot conscien- tiously and consistently comply with. It is hardly necessary to mention the fact to you that we have all suffered at the hands of so-called contractors, who have brought calumny upon our calling and all connected with it. We hope you will meet us half way and express yourselves fully and freely upon this matter, and offer any suggestions which you think would tend towards bringing about the object of this conference.
Very respectfully submitted.
EUGENE DAVIS, Chairman Committee.
