LETTER TO CHAUTAUQUA GUARANTORS

Local chautauqua guarantors received a very curt letter relative to the contract they signed at the close of the last chautauqua, saying: “The contract is hereby refused. If Sandpoint is to enjoy an Ellison-White chautauqua it must do so on the same terms as every other town. I quite realize this will mean you will not have a Chautauqua for perhaps many years, but you folks just as well know now that you cannot get more than you pay for in a chautauqua way.” The letter goes on: “Regretting that you do not play the game in a way that will permit us to serve, I remain, Yours truly, J.R. Ellison.”
