"The Calvert Woman's Club, sponsor of the Katy Hamman-Stricker Women's Heritage
Center in Calvert, Texas, is so pleased with the Columbia Graphophone and traveling
record case you recently restored to perfection. You did a wonderful job; you brought
back the ambiance of the period with your restoration. When the music fills the building,
it will be like being back in 1909. The ladies of that period and we of the new period thank
you so very much for attention to every detail including the instructions. You have put
the finishing touches on our restoration of the only restored American Woman's League
building in existence. "
