Mr. John 17* Taurr^ Seattle^
Additional fur»ds must Tdb provided at once if the Alaska- Yukon-Pac if io Exposition is to be completed in time for the formal opening on June 1, 1909. The Exposition Company has proceeded as far as it can with the money derived from the sale of capital stock. It has reached the limit of its resources, and unless the necessary funds are promptly placed at its disposal, it will he forced to dis¬ continue its preparations and practically to admit to the world that the Exposition has heen abandoned. To meet the emergency which has arisen the Exposition is offering for sale |350,000 of first mortgage 6 per cent gold bonds, the particulars of which are fully set forth in the circular herewith enclosed This is a matter which interests you as well as every other citizen and business concern having the welfare of Seattle at heart. Please give it your most careful con¬ sideration. Then make as liberal a subscription to the bond issue as you can and send the same to the Finance Comajittee together with a re¬ mittance covering the amount of your subscription. Remember that time is the essence of your action, for, without money, the Exposition must come to a stand-still. The bonds are en absolutely safe invest¬ ment and will be repaid in full, with good interest, long before the close of the Exposition*
