Transcript Two features of Houston's population particularly commend themselves; one, its unusual growth in later years, and the other, the marked numerical superiority of truly American stock. In these days when the influence of foreign elements is becoming so markedly manifest in American industrial centers, a community with a "preponderance" of American ideals, free from the blight of foreign radicalism, must commend itself to the American investor seeking an opportunity to encourage industrial development. Houston provides such an opportunity.

It includes suburbs and immediate communities.
