[Letterhead]THE LILA MEADE VALENTINE MEMORIAL ASSOCIATION 15 East Franklin Street RICHMOND, VIRGINIA . March 29, 1927

Mrs. C. E. Townsend, Norfolk, VA.

Dear Mrs. Townsend,

In the 1926 session of the General Assembly of Virginia a joint resolution was unanimously adopted authorizing the placing of a memorial to Lila Meade Valentine in the Capitol of Richmond.

The Lila Meade Valentine Memorial Association, proceeding on the authority thus vested in it, desires to lay before you its plans. It is proposed that the memorial shall be in the form of a tablet or bust. A committee on design has been appointed, whose decision will be submitted to the members and to the State Art Commission.

The placing of a memorial to a woman for the first time in the Capitol of Virginia is of great significance, and the Association desires that as large a number of individuals as possible be given the opportunity of participating.
