Governor Rockefeller has .followed through with a letter of request to the American Express Com- pany. In the letter he says, "We are interested in the preservation of another significant landmark asso- ciated with a great Ameri- can - the birthplace of authoress Pearl Buck at Hillsboro. The restored house is located in one of West Virginia's most pic- turesque valleys and com- memorates the life of the renowned writer and win- ner of both the Pulitzer and Nobel Prizes in literature." "I am, therefore, pleased," the Governor continued, "to suggest a comparable arrangement with regard to the Pearl Buck Home /vhereby your company might contribute one cent or more toward the property's maintenance for each West Virginia pur- chase through American Express.:' Senator Spears suggests that all citizens concerned with the support of the Pearl Buck Home send letters to Mr. J. D. Rob- inson, III, American Ex- press Plaza, New York, N. y. 10004, urging that the Ameican Express Company do this for at least a comparable period of time. The arrangement was brought to the attention of Senator Spears by Jim Comstock, editor emeritus of the West Virginia Hill- billy. Senator Spears has also brought this matter to the attention of Mrs. Alma Hoylman, President of the Pearl S. Buck Birthplace Foundation.
