The arrival of a few more pledges revived the hope that a bronze copy of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address may still be presented to Mahwah’s new school before the end of the year. The as yet unnamed school in Cragmere had already received a bronze copy of the Declaration of Independence from Mr. and Mrs. Howard F. Holman. Because of the depression pledges had lagged. Among the new subscribers to the project were Mr. and Mrs. James Devine, Mr. and Mrs. F. P. Best, E. Endleight Forbes, William O. King, Dr. F. J. Liddy, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Mabie, Dr. Edward H. Meyer, Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd O. Selling, R. Ralph Seberry, Havilah M. Smith, Mrs. Even Trumbower and Richard Valentine.
