Mr. And Mrs. L. J. Pierson
The Directors of the Elmwood Library Assoc[iation], in looking over the records, find the names
of a number of members who have not been interested in the Library during the last few years.
New books are being added to the Library constantly and an earnest endeavor is being made to
interest all subscribers. There have been no dues received from you since July 1893. Will you
kindly notify the Sec[retar]y whether you wish your name dropped from the list of members or
whether you desire to retain your membership.
N. W. Gates, Sec[retar]y By order of the Directors
We feel that the Library ought to be supported by general taxation, and not by personal effort and
so you may drop our names and oblige
Mr. and Mrs. L. J. Pierson
