We appreciate the kindly feelings and assistance of all who
have co-operated with us in making "The Wagner" the best hotel in
this portion of the country, and now at this season of good cheer,
please accept our sincere thanks and the somewhat sierotyped, yet
heartfelt expression, for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

better hotel, but of also making Plattsmouth a better town.
