To the Mayor and Council of Hagerstown I wish to express my very deep and appreciative thanks for their great interest in the Museum project and keen understanding of its far reaching educational advantages. Their willingness, with that of the County Commissioners, to supply the necessary funds for its maintenance, is sufficient proof of their ambition toward artistic advancement, both for the present and future generations. They have in this way built for themselves a lasting monument, their names revered for all time, through their comprehensive desire to be a part in the artistic progress of their town and county.

Personally, I cannot sufficiently thank them in words, but I hope and feel, that the Museum itself will, in its beautiful way and ennobling influence, express my heart’s appreciation to them, as also its lasting affection for the home Town and its people. It is, therefore, with great pleasure that I now give over the Museum and its contents to Hagerstown and Washington County.
