CLAREMORE, Okla., Sept. 18, 1929 - Back to the old home State. The Governor had just made me Colonel on his staff and I come home to put out a mint bed.

The State never looked better and politics never looked worse, which is as it should be. Just missed by one day a reunion of the writers of our State Constitution, which was celebrating its twenty- second birthday, and beautiful tribute was paid there to my father, who was the oldest member of the Constitution founders.

If Oklahoma does in the next twenty-two years what we have in the last, why New York will be our parking space, Chicago our arsenal, New Orleans our amusement centre and Los Angeles segregated for Elk and Shrine conventions.

Yours,

Will Rogers.
