Booker T. In Hospital
By Associated Press
New York, March 20 – Booker T. Washington was beaten up last night by Albert Ulrich, a janitor at an apartment building who accused him of acting suspiciously around the building. He was unable to appear in court this morning on account of his injuries. Ulrich was released on a $1500 bail for his appearance on Washington’s charge of felonious assault. Ulrich declares he attacked the negro on a complaint of his wife and that Washington tried to hit him. Washington declares he went to the apartment house to look for Auditor Smith of the Tuskegee institute and that not knowing the latter’s suite number was looking for the name on the directory board when the janitor attacked him with a club. Washington is in a hospital where sixteen stitches were taken in his scalp.

We are pleased to return herewith our booking receipt for the same. Please send us the full name and residence of each member of your party.
We are pleased to enclose herewith our European booklet recently published in which Tour No. 101 is outlined. We can send you as many copies of this booklet as you desire for distribution among your contest winners, and of course will be glad to add the strongest kind of a guarantee that the Tour will be carried out as advertised. We secured the space on the Steamship both going and coming months ago and placed our cash deposit on the same.
This agency has been in existence for thirty years and we have handled a large number of Tourist parties, among them many newspaper contestants and including such papers as New York American, Brooklyn Daily Eagle, and etc. We also send you a copy of publication which we issue, “Summer and Winter” and kindly refer you to pages 50 and 51, containing testimonials which have been given us unsolicited.

Very Truly yours,
