Ann Akbor, Jan. 28, '91. Editor Courier :- "Ann Arbor needs a fint class hotel and it -will pay." Thia was said to the writer by one of Ann Arbor's and Washtenaw Co. 's most respected and honored citizens- it will pay. The Greek Letter Societies wiH take their suppers there, and the University, of conree, would give its alumni dinners in it, if it had a capacious dining room. The hotel should be located on a corner near the business center, and should have wide verandas, piazzas etc. A prominent business man said he would board there with his family during the summer. It would get all the patronage of the wealthy who come to Ann Arbor to visit their children in the University, This would help boom Ann Arbor as a summer resort. We can inake it one. Our boarding house? are open from June to Oct. and we have the most charming city in Michigan, beautifu] scenery, fine drives, Street railways, giving elegant rides very cheap, shaded streets, pure water, electricity, and the great University of Michigan with its immense museums. People will come if we only advertise our attractions. Besides we flU the city with teachers if we will it. At Harvard college in Cambridge, Mass., the hottestplace to summer in in the country, thcy have summer schools of natural history, botany, etc. Let some one start then, as Prof. Trueblood has his School of Elocution, and also a School of Music, then push he idea, and tliey will grow. Talk of he hotel project, Mr. Editor, we may not get it at once, but it is needed, and as oon as it is known, some one will come n and build it, We began talking the water works, and in time outside capital ame liere and asked for the privilege of Utting them in. The writer predicts hat this will be the case with the hotel. We can get a first class hotel, and this will boom the city for a summer resort. We are all interested in the matter, and prefer to have the city all summer long. Let us hear from others. Who speaks flrst? Yours for booming always,
