Form No. 7.
As the chairman of this meeting, I will explain the object of this gathering. As is well-known, the property of no person in this section is secure from robbery. Thieves are abroad night and day, and persons in this region, especially farmers, have been heavy losers, particularly of horses. Feeling that definite and positive action should be taken to more effectually guard ourselves, this meeting is called for the purpose of organizing a protective association. In order that we may better understand how such an organization may be formed and be made beneficial to our community, Mr. Walter D. Hammond, the secretary of the Home Protective Association of Mount Hope, has been invited to visit us and detail how the Mount Hope Association was organized and what good it has accomplished. In accord with that invitation Mr. Hammond is now here, and to you I now introduce him.
