The New Orleans Book (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The New Orleans Book
We wish to express our appreciation of the unfailing courtesy and cooperation of the gentlemen of the New Orleans Board of Public School Directors and the Superintendents of the New Orleans Public Schools. It is our sincere wish that The New Orleans Book will attain the end they desire, namely, the dissemination of knowledge of New Or leans, fostering of love of our unique city, and development of a true eivic spirit, active in times of peace, in reform, and improvement along lines conservative of the city's individuality and, yet, abreast with real progress, - and steadfast, true, and self-sacrifieing in times of trouble and trial which, in the progression of the world, must necessarily come upon New Orleans in the future as in the past; but, as in the past, to be heroically borne and overcome, thus giving rise to a still nobler period.
