NEBRASKA STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY.

The undersigned, impressed with the importance of collecting and preserving, in particular, such historical material as shall serve to illustrate the settlement and growth of the state of Nebraska, and knowing that much valuable to that end can now be obtained from living tongues and pens of those familiar from organization, and which may be lost by further procrastination, adopt this method of securing the organization of a state historical society. We call on friends of the object in view throughout the state to meet at the Commercial Hotel in the city of Lincoln, on the evening of Wednesday, September twenty-fifth, 1878, for the purpose herein indicated.
