-- September 07, 1879About the Cannstatt Festival A Good Start for the Schiller Monument
To the Editor of the Illinois Staats-Zeitung: We thank you for the generous support given to our second Cannstatt festival, and hope that you will publish the following item in the local news column of Der Westen:
"The committee on arrangements hereby thanks all who participated in the Cannstatt festival, and desires to express appreciation to those who decorated houses and streets for the occasion.
"The proceeds of the festival, about $1,000, are available for a Schiller monument in Lincoln Park.
"Franz Demmler, secretary, acting for the committee."2
(Westen editor's note: For one thousand dollars, a nice monument could be erected, such as a large bust on a granite pedestal. But we hear the Schwabenverein has a higher goal in mind; nothing less than a large-sized figure of the great German poet is contemplated.)
