J.E. Foster billed his company, Foster's Land Agency and Bureau of Emigration as the oldest land agency in Houston, in "The Texas Rural Register and Immigrants' Hand-book, for 1875," [B.F. Hardcastle & Co.: 1875, p.76]: "Owners of Texas lands will find it to their advantage to give me the agency of their lands, as the extensive advertising I have done throughout the United States in the interest of the Texas Prize Concert and Real Estate Drawing has placed me in communication with thousands of persons who intend making Texas their future home, and a large number of persons who are desirous of securing larger bodies of land for colonization purposes." In this same publication he also advertises his "Second Real Estate and Gold Drawing" to be held on March 3, 1875 in Houston. Evidently it became a regular event.
