Chicago  Aug 2nd  1880

Gov. St. John

Dear Sir.

As the time approaches for our Convention at Lake Bluff, I renew the request to which you responded so kindly some time ago to give us an address at that gathering , hoping that the peculiar conjuncture of circumstances may enable you to visit us without serious inconvenience

The Knights Templars Encampment occurs in Chicago Aug 16th & 17th, the grand parade on the latter day.  You can be present with us on Wednesday the opening day of the Convocation, covering both the Parade and the Convocation in two days.  I write in this vein, as Mr Gassette informed me they had invited all the Governors of states to be present.  Let us have the pleasure of hearing from you, and seeing you on the 18th inst.

Yours etc  A.J. Jutkins.

(Direct to Rockland Ill)
