Our season in Manchester was a grand success in every way, during which I had made so many pleasant acquaintances among the citizens that notwithstanding my longing for home and America, it was with many painful feelings that we prepared to take our departure. A few days before taking leave of the scene of our magnificent triumphs I received the following letter from the Mayor of Salford:
Manchester, March 9th, 1888
Dear Sir:—It may interest you to know that I have
named three streets on the New Barnes estate, on
the north side of the Race-course, as follows: Cody
street; Buffalo street; and Bill street, and plans for their
construction will be submitted to the Salford corporation
These names will perpetuate the names of yourself
and your show after your departure from Salford.
The Hon. W. F. Cody,
Wild West Show, Salford.
