Hogg to John Dix, August 27, 1891

Drought has always been a problem in Texas. Beginning in the early 1890s, Texans began to experiment with "rainmaking" techniques. In 1891, General Robert St. George Dyrenforth used explosive balloons and artillery to try to make rainclouds develop in Midland. Congress and the Department of Agriculture paid for the experiments, which were inconclusive.

In 1892, the rainmakers tried their hand in El Paso, the King Ranch in South Texas, and Camp Farwell near San Antonio, with little result. The experiment had ended in failure.

Governor Hogg, ever interested in progress on all fronts, here makes plans to see the rainmaking for himself.

Hogg to Dix

P.S. Since dictating the above
I learn that Gen'l Dyrenforth has
returned to Washington. I have
therefore this day telegraphed
Gen'l Rusk, Sec. Agriculture, with
the view of getting the experiment
made in SW Texas.
