Old Forester Saloon in Amirillo

I have an old letter written on September 16, 1900 on the Old Forester Saloon letter head and it is signed by J H Patton.It is in fair shape with pieces missing where it was folded. There is a boxed area on the top left that lists the kinds of whiseys that are sold plus peach and apple brandy, fine wines and cigars.
This was in some old correspondence that my mother brought home after her mother's death in 1994. I just recently found it and have no idea how or what it has to do with my family.
The Bounds, Owens and Wattenbarger families were mainly around Grayson, Hunt, and La Mar Counties in east Texas.I noticed there is a J H Patton who wed Rosa Lee Jackson on Jane 4, 1891 in La Mar Co, Texas.Can anyone tell me about this Saloon?? Anyone know of a J H Patton??
