My dear Senator:-
The North Carolina Cotton Association held a convention in Raleigh on Tuesday, the 11th, and unanimously adopted a series of resolutions, one of which is as follows:-
“We recommend that the present Congress of the United States enact the Smith Bill covering the character of cotton deliverable upon cotton exchange. We ask that the Governor of this State communicate immediately with our Senators and Representatives, informing them of his action.”
With best wishes, I am,
Same letter to Senator Simmons.
