I had the privilege of knowing this gentleman from my numerous visits to Pennington with Fred "Fritz" Kuser, husband of Edna Howe Kuser and Fritz's father in law, whom he always referred to as cordially as "Mayor." Mr. Howe was the consummate gentleman. His calm and soft spoken manner genetically passed along to his children. Edna was one of the most wonderful women I have met in all my years, and she was a true influence in my life. I miss her with that incredible disarming smile and personality.

You will note that the lower part of the text is missing; a testament to the fragile pulp paper stock which was used during the early 20th century.
