Paul Conrad and the Louisiana Lottery


Paul Conrad (b. 1840) was a New Orleans businessman who served as a Confederate soldier. He had been shot in the left shoulder in battle during the Civil War, but remained active in the Louisiana Field Artillery into the 1870s.  As a rule, in the post-war South, Confederate veterans were held in especially high regard, and Louisiana Governor S. B. Packard commissioned Conrad as Captain in his "Governor's Life Guard." Paul Conrad became an employee of the Louisiana State Lottery Company in 1870, becoming its president in 1890. Subsequently, the United States Congress banned the interstate transportation of lottery tickets and lottery advertisements. As a result, the company remained in Louisiana until its charter expired; Conrad moved its operations to Honduras where it was shut down in 1907.
LaRC Manuscripts Collection 463 consists of personal and business papers of Paul Conrad, with numerous artifacts of the 19th century Louisiana lottery. Included are handwritten correspondence, financial documents including medical receipts, insurance policies, architectural plans for a cottage by the beach in Waveland, military letters and certificates, a photograph, a printed lottery ticket, a partially printed lottery vendor's certificate, an invitation to the Crescent Club, social ephemera such as calling cards, clippings and other printed items. Correspondents include various individuals, including General Jubal A. Early, who helped supervise the lottery drawings; some of the letters concern military and veterans' affairs.

A related item is a small booklet in the Louisiana Research Collection titled, Tips [a poem], published in 1891 (its call number is: 976.3 (174.6) T595 LACOLL).  On the back of the illustrated comedic poem is Paul Conrad’s advertisement encouraging readers to purchase lottery tickets for the drawing on Tuesday, December 15th, 1891, in which “Two Millions of money will be distributed…”



In 2012, Louisiana has lottery drawings through the Louisiana Lottery Corporation, which traces its historical timeline back to 1990.

    I want to give thanks to Dr Ogaga for bringing back my ex husband. No one could have ever made me believe that the letter I’m about to write would actually one day be written. I was the world’s biggest skeptic. I never believed in magic spells or anything like this, but I was told by a reliable source (a very close co-worker) that Trust is a very dedicated, gifted, and talented person, It was one of the best things I have ever done. My love life was in shambles, I had been through two divorces and was on the brink of a third. I just couldn't face another divorce, and I wanted to try harder to make our relationship work, but my husband didn’t seem to care. and he brake up with me again. I was confuse and do not no what to do again, rather them to get in contact with Dr Ogaga . He did a love spell that make my husband come back to me. we are now very much happy with our self. Dr Ogaga make him to realize how much we love and need each other. This man is for REAL and for good, he can also help you to fix your broken relationship. I had my husband back! It was like a miracle! He suddenly wanted to go to marriage counseling, and we’re doing very, very well, in our love life. Contact

  7. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my husband. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and she told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my husband know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Zuma zuk spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com

  9. Help me celebrate Dr Isikolo for his great help. I Laura Ivano and i am one of those people who said I will never call a psychic or a magician or whatever to help me with my problems – least of all my love problems, but I reached the point where I knew I needed some guidance, and I’m so glad I found this man called Dr Isikolo. When I nearly lost David in one of our stupid fights and constant arguements (he broke up with me), I thought I had lost everything. i cry all day and think that he will never come back to me again. i read so many testimony about Dr. Isikolo love spell, how he help to bring back ex lover back. I quickly email him. and also get back my husband with his love spell. And when I was at my most desperate, he didn’t take advantage of me. You performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don’t know how you did it, or how this magic works, but all I know is, IT WORKS and my man returned back to me in 48 hours as he promised me!! David my husband and I are happily back together, and I will always be grateful to Dr Isikolo. email him for any kinds of help is very capable and reliable for help: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com or you can also WhatsApp him on +2348133261196

  10. Hi guys, I want to share my experience with you, about 10 Months ago in a bid to repair my poor credit score of about 523, I came across a fake hacker who promised to help out, but ended up worsening my situation, I spent over $7,500 and nothing changed until Mrs. Terry a very close friend of mine introduced me to CYBER CREDIT GURU, a professional Hacker who changed My life tremendously. CYBER CREDIT GURU cleared all negative items from my profile and increased my score from 523 to 805 in less than 8days. I must confess, they are the best.
