Below is, a copy of a bill which has been presented to the Legislature, requesting the State to make such provision as it may in its judgment see fit for the financial assistance of the Florida Historical Society. The bill is a literal copy of the one, offered at the last session of the Legislature, which passed the Senate but was left on the calendar of the House. The Society was organized to awaken interest in the preservation of historical data of the state in the absence of any official bureau or department and its active officers are doing all that busy men with numerous personal and family duties can perform to carry out the purposes of the organization.
