Excerpt from A Press Club Outing: A Trip Across the Continent to Attend the First Convention of the International League of Press ClubsThis brief record of a very agreeable journey from the Atlantic to the Pacific and back again, had its origin in a resolution adopted by the Convention of the International League of Press Clubs, in session in the rooms of the San Francisco Press Club, January 14th, 1892. The official report of the proceedings of that Convention refers to the subject as follows:"On the motion of Mr. Welshons, of Pittsburgh, Major T. P. McElrath, of New York, was elected Historian of the League, to prepare a book descriptive of the California trip; with the President and Secretary as an advisory committee, to arrange for the publication of the work."The preparation of the book has been attended with delays and hindrances both potent and unavoidable, for which the writer alone is responsible, and for which he asks the friendly indulgence of his fellow travelers. Similar lenity he trusts they will accord to the book itself, accepting it rather in the light of a completed task than in that of a finished production. It is too little a pudding to contain many plums. Its purpose, as the writer conceives it, will be fully served if it proves adequate to keep alive the delightful personal associations connected with the three memorable weeks of sunshine and pleasure enjoyed by the Press Club Delegates to the San Francisco Convention.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
