My impression of Idlewild is expressed forcibly in the Latin phrase "Resnon Verbis." My wife and I spent four ofthe most delightful and pleasurable weeks ofour lives in August 1918 in ... Idlewild. So pleased were we that upon our return to Cleveland we purchased four more lots and will erect a cottage next year. We intend to spend our 1919 and all subsequent summer vacations in dear old Idlewild. It is unsurpassed as an ideal spot for an enjoyable, recuperative vacation and is just the place to put a professional man on edge after eleven months of nerve-racking duties. "Idlewild must be seen to be appreciated." Yours very truly, Dr. Arthur S. Scott Dentist 3404 Central Avenue Chicago, Illinois BLACK EDEN: THE IDLEWILD COMMUNITY APPENDIX 3: Curry's Letter of Endorsement January 21. 1919 To all Lovers of Our Race: I am glad to speak a good word for the Idlewild Resort Company. It is my duty to inform my friends ofany good project that I believe will help this race to higher things. I have made a long study of the Idlewild movement and have been convinced that it is worthy of our suppport. It is a good. safe investment. Idlewild. in Michigan. will. in a few years. be the center of attraction for our educational. fraternal. business and religious meetings in the summer. I have purchased lots in Idlewild and will secure more this Spring. The Curry Institute is planning a Summer Normal for Teachers to be conducted there. The place is ideal in every way and I shall do all I can for the advisement of the Work. Yours for humanity. E. W. B.
