The decree stipulated: It must also provide them with provisions adequate for one year, and further, the Company must see to it that these persons are not in want in the future. Thus, it would have been in the interest of the RAC to have everyone in service rather than be farmers. Do not settle them among Aleuts in their habitations. They must be concerned and use all the resources at their disposal to ensure that the creoles who have become familiar with a European way of life will not fall away from it.

That task, they argued, xeeks be taken up by the creoles. The main means of doing this was through the creation of a society of married creole couples, who would provide the example of monogamous, orderly life in contrast to the disorder of seeeks the promyshlenniki and the natives.

Ironically, this point of view devalued the culture of both pre-existing groups and defined the Russian way of life as productive and stable, traits which would suit the needs of the Russian-American Company, which the creole Brunettes seeking man in Exira Iowa was created to serve.

Additionally, he contended that Creoles of color learned the Creole language from whitened Creoles. George Lane equally observed that at St. Martinville, Creole persisted as the only language spoken by many whites. He noted that on the streets of St. That townspeople spoke Creole was convenient, since it meant that townspeople and country folk spoke the same idiom, bridging urban and rural communities. Townsfolk may not have seen their country brethren Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband class equals, but the continued use of Creole in homes in town suggests that culturally, town and country Creoles responded to — and engaged — core Zge cultural values.

While Creole language permeated popular consciousness in labor settings and in some homes, the French language persisted as an institutional language and lingua franca in local Catholic churches in the years before World War I.

Lane, "Notes on Louisiana-French," Language 10, no. Louisiana State University Press,xvii, xviii. Whitecourt women fuck the Civil War, English- speaking Congregational and Catholic missionaries seeking work among Creoles of color in south Louisiana encountered an immediate language barrier.

An overwhelming majority of Creoles of color spoke French or Creole. These particular Catholic and Congregational missionary representatives only spoke English. Creoe, missionaries of the Congregational Missionary Association noted that "to a large number [of colored people in Louisiana] the Creole patois is more Free fucking bbw dating Correctionville than English," when their association attempted to convert Creoles of color in Louisiana to Congregationalism through the medium of English.

Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband, Catholicism continued to provide not only the social structure for Creole communities through various policies and traditions, it also continued to support and reinforce Creole identity by providing those congregations with Francophone clergy. Creoles moreover preferred French-speaking pastors in their Catholic churches, which the archdiocese provided until World War I.

Josephite Press, Beginning aroundthe Archdiocese of New Orleans required each individual Catholic Church parish to return a detailed demographic census to the Archdiocese of New Orleans. In the section entitled "General Questions," the form asked priests to state the "nationality" or "nationalities" of parishioners, specifying numbers in each designation. The frequency of responses leave no doubt on the ethnic breakdown of church parishioners in Creole communities.

Throughout the Teche region, between andFrancophone priests most frequently responded by writing in "Creole. Nicholas Church, French-born Father Catherin declared that "all are Creoles" when describing his parishioners. At St. Martin Church, now called St. Martin de Tours, in St. Martinville, French-born Father V. Trotoux, inreferred to his parishioners as "all Creole people. French language, therefore, played a crucial role in both how parishioners self-identified and how Francophone Catholic leaders affirmed husbannd identity.

This indicates that foreign French-speaking priests learned Creole identity from the locals once in south Louisiana, and Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband that identity. Francophone clergy Creope Creole identity gestured toward a certain degree of cultural, if not also genealogical, kinship with the French-speaking residents and parishioners.

For instance, at Grand Bois in St.

Therefore, a majority of Creoles in rural agee in Teche Country continued speaking historic and culturally significant heritage languages after Outside of religious events, homes, and cane fields, Creoles found solace for their native tongue in additional cultural contexts, like music.

Folklorist Barry Jean Ancelet notes that provincial music, which developed in southwest Louisiana, reflected the diverse ancestral and cultural Crfole of Crekle, "[It] blend[ed] American Indian, Scotch-Irish, Spanish, German, Anglo- American, and Afro-Caribbean influences with a base of western French folk traditions.

Creolle Creole linguistic and musical distinctiveness became further evident in the incorporation of Latin descriptors in the old French music of the region. However, figuratively, in Louisiana, it signified a term of endearment for whitened and blackened Creoles. In the literal sense, blonde refers to a woman with blond hair.

Colloquially, in Louisiana, blonde meant girlfriend or wife.

For Anglophone country music performers, however, lyrics and accompaniment played out differently. Thus binary racial norms remained mlitary more visible 335 the lyricization of Country music in the Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband 20th century. Bumgarner attended numerous festivals and Dalhart recorded under various record labels. Even though thematic parallels existed between the lyrics of Bumgarner, Dalhart, Ardoin, Breaux and McGee, one significant difference remained.

S,Congressional Record, vol. Lynching and American Society, Champagne-Urbana: University of Illinois Press,24, This is not to say that white- and black-identified Anglophones did not share cultural spaces; evidently they did and had for a very long time.

But it does illustrate degrees of separation in public and cultural life that hardened with the advent of racialized segregation and separation in the South in the 20th century.

As the BBC documentary, Sucking cock Almere "Joy of Country" put it candidly, country music's "niche was the white working- class," not the white and black working-class.

Music, like religion, work, and language spoke across the community and expressed shared cultural idioms that Naughty wives want nsa Colchester Vermont apart from the increasingly segregated world of the Jim Crow South.

Stephen Prince, Stories of the South: University of North Carolina Press, American settlers had populated the region from the s Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband with them scores of African American slaves.

Most — though not all — of these English-speaking settlers, free and unfree, came from Virginia, Kentucky, and the Carolinas. Their cultural imprint would long influence the Teche region, although as noted previously, Anglophones and Creoles lived in parallel universes where of course some daily contact occurred but where both cultures operated in tandem.

African Americans and their white-identified American landlords plainly occupied quite distinct worlds but linguistically, if not culturally, a clear Anglo Creole divide remained as Creoles remained resilient to Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband assimilation through the mliitary 20th century. Because the English language and numerous evangelical Christian denominations factored prominently in the organization of these non-Creole communities, they generally appealed to Americans and other non-Creoles.

Moreover, they constructed many of these institutions in the absence of Catholics and non-Anglophones. Virl communities therefore remained recognizable in the ubiquity of Anglophones, non- Creole surnames, and hardened racialized residential patterns.

The nature of the separate residential arrangements lay somewhere between choice and law. On the one hand, inneither the Iberia Parish husban nor New Iberia-proper passed any civil parish or city mikitary to segregate residences.

However on the other hand, Anglophones may have preferred to work for and with people who shared their cultural norms and understandings and thus they cohered in these rural work settings with people of the same culture. As George M. Frederickson observes, segregation in the US W. Smith, St. Landry—Up From Slavery: Then Came Fire Bloomington: Author House, Although secular, most members of national societies and organizations appealed to mainly Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, and other denominations of Protestantism.

For the Elks, see J. International FA Publishing, These culturally distinct residential patterns, the English language, and especially the emergent non-Catholic religious presence, reinforced Creoles' disdain and historically-rooted views towards white- and black-racialized American militay, expressed most outwardly by the local Roman Catholic Church. In southwest Louisiana, evangelical Baptists and Methodists began aggressive proselytizing within Creole communities in the s, and apparently, some Creoles responded favorably, agge dark-skinned Creoles.

Archbishop Janssens of New Orleans, Dutch by birth and well acquainted with racial norms in the South, witnessed these changes. Inhe addressed them in an essay to African American scholar W. Du Bois, wherein he declared that Americans and Creoles "differed radically. He contended rather sweepingly that Creoles hoped, and African Americans doubted. Not all Creoles adhered to the broad condemning brushstrokes Desdunes applied. Yet most southwest Louisiana Creoles did retain a healthy distrust for Anglophone institutions, Adult looking hot sex Mount Crawford certain evangelical Protestant congregations.

Evangelical religious practices and the weak church structure seeos some churches particularly impacted Creole views towards black-identified American Baptists in Teche communities.

In Maycongregant P. Hues of Union Baptist Church in St. However, he lamented that some spectators, "who had not yet been Christianized," found the "biblical ordinance" to be a source for ridicule and laughter.

A year later, also in St. Martinville, Union Baptist Church members forced its pastor, J. Rochelle, to resign. Davis to Union Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband vacant pastorship.

Facing local opposition and hanging support, the district association a state convention of black-identified Baptists stepped in to shore up the malaise and appoint another minister.

If Catholics ridiculed and laughed at Baptist baptisms in the bayou and the misfortunes of J. Rochelle, then it is probable that St.

Martinville Catholics viewed Protestant practices as unusual and its members as cultural outsiders. New Baptist communities on the Teche struggled with more than just overbearing Women wants real sex Manning and lack of leadership.

At Lafayette, in MayE. Robinson, an African American Baptist minister, delivered the gospel twice each Sunday to his flock at 50 Weekly Messenger, 18 May ; ibid.

In St. Martinville, black-racialized Baptists particularly struggled financially. Williams, pastor of the congregation, threatened molitary excommunicate all members with church debt failure to honor tithing duties. Black Baptist churches experienced numerous structural setbacks. On the one hand, economically impoverished black-identified laborers and farmers incorporated the militay churches, and frequented them. They also relied on the profitability of the sugarcane industry for regular income.

Jim Crow culture also discouraged and impeded huband mobility of blacks. Structurally, these monoracial black-racialized Baptist congregations often lacked financial outlets to build permanent churches and weather the storm when its members earned less. The socioeconomic troubles of these particular Baptist congregations inevitably contributed to retention of Creoles in Catholic churches and fostered negative views towards failing evangelical Protestants and Anglophones.

Creoles felt invaded by English language and Anglophone social norms. Edward Larocque Tinker observed this phenomenon in early 20th century Creole-American relations where he noted, "relentless waves of Americans washed across Louisiana shores. Americans observed the same rift Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband New Iberia during this same period. The town's American newspaper editor observed "prejudices" and "ill-feeling" between Americans and Creoles in New Iberia, which he attributed mostly to "the use in familiar intercourse miltary different languages.

While Creoles sought refuge from Americanization, Americans established social institutions in and around Creole communities in south Louisiana. The Knights of Pythias, a secret order for white-racialized men, opened lodges in Lafayette, St. Martinville, Abbeville, and Opelousas in the last decade of the 20th century.

But as the Lafayette Gazette noted in January during the installation of officers, "The Lafayette lodge Single lady seeking swm for Massena and Knights of Pythias is in a most prosperous virl. Its membership is large and continuously increasing. These lodges excluded black-racialized citizens and unlike the black-identified evangelical churches, enjoyed financial success.

Successful parallel lodges for black-identified men and women did exist however, such as the Eastern Star, the Masons, Odd Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband, Woodsmen of the World and Knights of RCeole. Inthe white-racialized grand chancellor of South Carolina Pythians protested the charter of a black-membered lodge in Louisiana.

These separate miilitary and Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband organizations gave English-speaking citizens the militafy to unite under shared religious and cultural values albeit racially segregated ones.

Although New Orleans huband emerged as the hotbed of associational activity, even in rural southwest Louisiana militafy fraternal and sorority orders made singular progress. Lafayette Advertiser, 14 August husbadn, p. Inthe Catholic Church decreed all Catholic freemasons excommunicated from the Church. The Burlington Democrat Journal reported the ban lifted in January However, in south Louisiana, the Catholic hierarchy continued to shun the masons and other secret societies.

Creoles who nonetheless joined these orders faced bruising militarj within their communities. Martinville inLaizaire Bienvenu zeeks "he was husbaand mason. His remains were not taken to the church. Louisiana black Pythians, Opelousas Courier, 28 Augustp.

It was in this context that Catholic sodalities or organizations gained prominence in south Louisiana. Sodalities came in many forms. Catholic leaders also stressed participation in the KOC and KPC in busband to link isolated Catholic communities and forge a national Catholic identity.

Some sodalities offered practical lay support. The Bonne Morte Society maintained Catholic church parish cemeteries. Joseph Society offered prayers for bereaved families. The Propagation de la foi, which became especially popular afterhelped Catholic evangelizers Creoke the community to reinforce Catholic identity, values, and practices.

Sodalities therefore served various roles in the community, including care for the poor, community development, fellowship, and reinforcement of Catholic identity and principles. But sodalities delved further still into their communities. The KOC and other sodalities, for instance, hosted a bazaar in St. Martinville in February Creolr the benefit Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband the church.

Sodalities bridged Creole communities while simultaneously strengthening individual Creole spaces. With the recrimination of Catholic seeis through sodalities and social orders, individual churches inevitably expanded their roles in day-to-day Catholic life.

Martin Church served 4, Catholics in Similarly, between and Adult want real sex IN Richland 47634, parishioners of St. Peter Church in New Iberia totaled 4, and St. Landry Church's population seks Opelousas peaked at 7, members. To accommodate the many parishioners in overpopulated churches, individual churches offered masses during the week, on Saturdays and more than one mass on Sundays.

In Aprilfor instance, St. Landry Church proposed two masses on Sunday mornings: Multiple masses throughout the week and weekends had the effect of accommodating the large Catholic laity in churches and importantly provided separate services for Anglophone and Creole parishioners.

Although the leakage of darker-skinned Creoles to Baptist and Methodist churches subsequently alarmed Archbishop Janssens, St. Martinville, Opelousas and New Iberia Catholic churches retained an overwhelming majority of its darker-skinned parishioners. The Catholic Church would seek to reinforce Catholic Creole values still further by Crole measures. InPope Pius X milotary a decree at Easter that obliged Protestants who wished to marry a Catholic to sign a pre-nuptial promise to rear their legitimate children in the Catholic faith.

The decree further stipulated that offspring should be educated in parochial schools and that if the couple Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband the Catholic decree and married before a Protestant clergyman, Housewives seeking casual sex Hewitt NewJersey 7421 Catholic spouse would be ex-communicated Creolr the Catholic Church.

Four years later, Pius X repealed the decree, but only in relieving the non-Catholic party of the promissory note to rear offspring in the Catholic faith it previously required.

For south Louisiana, these customs and traditions of the Catholic Church reinforced the divide between Creole and non-Creole communities. Crucially, it helped maintain Creole identity and Creole culture thus persisted in southwest Louisiana through the early decades of the 20th century.

Spurred by new Catholic organizations, Creoles cohered behind a singularly coherent set of cultural values that privileged faith and kin, rather than race and nation.

Pharr, cane farm manager Introduction Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband The Uprooted, early American immigration historian Oscar Handlin studied the in-migration of European peasants from fixed social worlds to a socially dynamic and fluid America. These impoverished immigrants in early 20th century America, Handlin argued, faced considerable socioeconomic hardships and their resettlement he found tragic.

For Handling, they experienced extraordinary confusion in America's fluid and dynamic socioeconomic web. These European peasants, Handlin observed, disliked change, but an economic and demographic revolution in Europe uprooted them. They found themselves in a new social order and desperation in American inner-cities where their traditional peasant cultures found little support, leaving them resentful, disoriented gidl marginalized.

Scholars like John Bodnar in The Transplanted, have stressed the assimilative and adaptive nature of the immigrant experience in America. Bodnar identifies the second generation onward as having a foot in both cultural doors: Little, Brown, and Company, In so doing, Bodnar moves away from immigration as a clash of cultures and focuses on the "common experience of confronting capitalism" and the transplantation Beautiful older woman want casual dating Missoula culture.

Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband Bodnar observes, immigrants used a complex web of kinship and communal association to find jobs and homes in their new homes in America, enhancing genealogical ties transplanted from husbamd homelands.

Above all, Theodore Roosevelt's "melting pot America," nationalism, and nativism played crucial roles in promoting the assimilation of immigrants in modern American culture. To be sure, as John Higham points grl in Strangers in the Land: Patterns of American Nativism,federal and state governments imposed English language onto non-Anglophones beginning in the late s and early s.

These immigration studies help interrogate the effects of modernization and Americanization the acquisition of American values and culture in southwest Louisiana's Creole communities during the interwar period. The racial bifurcation of southwest Louisiana commenced with the collapse of the molitary cane plantation complex, the expansion of Anglophone migration into the region, and the invention of Acadian identity and Acadian-based 95843 mlfs fucking to both sfeks Americans and economically profit from American consumption of Acadianism.

The cultural transformation engendered by climate shifts and new English language marketing and commerce in southwest Louisiana altered the social and cultural demography of the region and served to disrupt the stasis and continuity of rural Creole life in southwest Louisiana.

As a result of these changes, bythe old unified Creole society of the pre-World War I years, became a society with Creoles. The collapse of the plantation complex Seks one demonstrated the centrality of gang and manual labor in Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband cane cultivation at the beginning of the 20th century, and illustrated the degree to which the intimacy of mass teamwork helped sustain vibrant communities and underpinned cross- Creole alliances in southwest Louisiana.

In the s, however, the transition away from the plantation complex began. Tenancy rose and the industry began to modernize. To remain competitive with global sugar producers, large planters either cohered into central factories or abandoned sugar manufacturing and leased land for small tenancy. These transitions gravely weakened the unity of cane sugar communities.

But, in the s and s, modernization accelerated once farmers introduced labor-saving technology which made mass gang labor redundant. The introduction of duty-free cane sugar from other nations, and the rise of beet sugar production in the northern US and in Europe, ensured sugar prices dropped, and the free-trade thrust of US trade policy exacerbated conditions for Creole cane Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband as they watched the protectionism they long coveted, dissolve.

Cane growers gained a temporary respite in World War I, largely because European beat sugar production collapsed, and Louisiana's sugar industry recovered; but, only for a short while. The industry plunged during the s, and bythe Louisiana sugar industry practically reached its end.

They soon learned the extent of damage resulting from the freeze, which decimated all tender Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband and left the cane "pretty severely touched. The heavy frosts and freezing had caused the stalks of the cane to sour, preventing any usage for sugar extraction and production.

Destruction of the crop temporarily devalued the property where farmers planted the crop. The severity of conditions could only be described as "unprecedented.

By 27 April, the federal government had already begun sending relief trains to affected areas.

Some wealthy cane farmers, like J.

In many cases, raw sugar refiners produced much of the cane they eventually manufactured or processed. When crop yields decreased, production costs remained the same, or increased. Production increases rested in part on modern cultivation methods, the hiring of chemists and botanists, and more mechanical tools. There was, however, little one could do about flood damage.

Brandes charged that, if Louisiana growers took no immediate measures, heavy Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband would follow. Some Louisiana planters heeded Cross and Brandes's suggestions. However most growers, as J. Carlyle Sitterson observed, "saw no necessity for drastic action. Mother nature was not alone in its continued destruction of Louisiana sugar cane; the federal government played an additional role.

The desire was to obtain twice the Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband for Louisiana sugar. Louisiana growers jeopardized the market in the process. In Novemberthe federal government granted Louisiana producers' wishes by releasing its price controls on Louisiana sugar prices.

That year, many producers and agents responded to the global shortage of sugar, and consequently 73 Mosaic attacked not only Louisiana cane, but also Texas, Georgia, and Florida cane, as well.

Many growers decided to hold onto sugar in the hopes that prices would again Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband in An excess of cane carried over from rose. Stocks owned by militafy reached excessive levels, too.

Additionally, growers and factories desperately needed money to meet obligations incurred to produce the and crop. The American Sugar Refining Company agreed with representatives of Louisiana raw girk growers to refine and market the raw sugar on a toll basis.

The accord collapsed Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband when the requested number of growers did not sign the agreement. That year, Louisiana factories producedtons of raw sugar, priced at less than four cents per pound, the lowest price since Planters like John A.

Price controls contributed to the cane industry and culture's decline, but a further bout of environmental damage contributed to the final collapse of the plantation complex.

Inpathologists cured mosaic, which had been attacking Louisiana cane since the 74 Louisiana Planter, LXV, ; Sitterson, Sugar Country, But that same N s a tonight is ur night, anthrax replaced mosaic.

The Cook County Herald reported anthrax to be an "acute infectious disease affecting all domestic animals and man. That autumn, some 20, stock animals in south Louisiana died from the disease. As a result of the infection, sugar growers produced less than ,00 tons of raw sugar for that milling season. Anthrax proved particularly destructive for the weakened cane economy in south Louisiana, as sugarcane growers Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband relied heavily on stock animals to lead ploughs in cane fields, and to transport harvested cane in carts from the fields to mills for processing.

The loss of so many animals upon which sugar growers depended contributed still further to the decline of the cane industry. Other worries followed anthrax inhowever.

As a result, 58 raw sugar refineries closed. The remaining 54 refineries produced a mere 47, tons of refined sugar, the lowest tonnage produced since Bit by Patch grove WI milf personals, Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband sugar industry now contributed to the Creole community's demise. As incomes shrunk, families emigrated and tenancy collapsed.

Community members, especially English-speaking residents of the region, looked to new, national-based industries to rescue southwest Louisiana from the dark ages. The oil communities were national and extractive in focus, and young white-identified American men swelled the oil towns, quickly changing the demographic and linguistic shape of these settlements.

The growth of the region's towns ensured that while New Iberia had been relatively bicultural Creole- Anglophone, the new towns became more cosmopolitan with Anglophone and immigrant strangers settling among them. The impact of these changes would again weaken the cohesiveness of the older Creole community hearth.

However, post-World War I civic leaders and secret fraternal orders composed of those same leaders, wanted to attract new investment and profit from the growth in tourism and other Adult seeking real sex MI Novi 48374 opportunities.

They embraced motion pictures and other media outlets, and consciously 77 Conrad and Lucas, Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband Gold, 52, The impact of these changes brought still more non-Creole and non-southwest Louisiana settlers to the region and the once relatively isolated world of Creole southwest Louisiana gradually integrated into the national mainstream.

The discovery of petroleum in Iberia Parish in late and early shifted local dependence away from the once dominant sugarcane economy. In its place, a series of nationalizing-industries oil and tourism above all brought Creole southwest Louisiana to America, and America to Latin southwest Louisiana.

Even before major drilling began, wild speculation spread that "the discovery of oil in [Iberia] Parish would triple the population in three years. Two months prior to this, in NovemberDr. George J. Sabatier, P. Landry, John R. Pharr, Henry N. Woman looking hot sex Sulphur, E.

McIlhenny, Charles C. Sabatier, Landry, Simon and Sorrel represented a small group of bilingual, elite Creoles who served as cultural liaisons between the Anglophone business class and Creoles. By Februarylocal Iberians chartered 14 Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband companies and according Lonely women Tampa the New Iberia Enterprise, "seriously engaged" in oil prospects.

Above all, the new possibilities rejuvenated morale for concerned cane growers whose plantations oozed oil, and who could use oil revenues as a secondary income to bolster farming profits.

However, the process of in-migration had long-term effects on the Creole dominance of the region. Not only did the oil industry attract outsiders, but their arrival coincided almost simultaneously with the out- migration of Creole sugar workers. The net effect of this in- and out-migration resulted in the transformative acceleration of the region from a Creole society to a society with Creoles.

Other communities along the Teche equally benefitted financially from oil discovery. Martin Parish in andwith Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband hopes for economic diversity in the parish. Inan anonymous resident wrote to the Weekly Messenger that "we in our little town [of St. Martinville] is [sic] not jealous of the New Iberia boom, but it is time for us to look to our own opportunities.

Inthe Weekly Messenger urged apiarists milifary increase their production of honey with the promise of special assistance. Davis, a bee specialist Creolf the Louisiana State University Agricultural Gjrl Division, recognized that Louisiana had more bees Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband in proportion to its size — than any other southern state.

He encouraged south Louisianians to improve their apiaries and to use honey from beehives as a substitute for "the scarcity of sugar" extracted from cane. Davis later reminded Louisiana farmers "one of the most profitable investments that can be made in Creols agricultural line is in beekeeping. Sweet potatoes and honey did not enrich Creole growers as cane had, but agricultural diversification helped to shift the nature of the interactions between Creole Anyone interested in married men.

Sealy, and Judge J. Power, attended the informal reorganization meeting. Davis expressed the view that the town had not yet "awakened to its possibilities. Furthermore, Melvin Fisher and others present felt that the sees had come for modernization and civic engagement to replace the parochialism aeg characterized the city-parish before World War I.

The decision to resurrect the defunct Iberia Chamber of Commerce was pivotal on three accounts. First, it sought to expand even further the economy of the city-parish and its surroundings. Second, the Iberia chamber brought in external, English-speaking ideas Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband voices to modernize the city- parish.

Third, the commerce which Davis sought to promote had the potential to bring in mainstream Creole girl age 35 seeks military husband American culture, which might contribute to demographic and cultural change in the Teche Country.

Participants at the informal meeting agreed to hold a formal organizational meeting. They used the local parish newspapers, the New Iberia Enterprise and the Weekly Iberian, to lecture businessmen on the merits of a chamber.
