MAILED OUT THOSE
ADVERTISEMENTS FOR BRICK?
Hundreds, of Elizabeth City people
received a circular last Saturday, ad
vocating brick for road paving. The
circulars were mailed in Elizabeth City
and some are saying that they were
mailed out by certain Elizabeth City
people who expect to gefc a rake-off
from any brick sold for road paving in
this county. In justice to the brick
people this newspaper takes it upon
itself to correct this error. The circu
lars in question were printed by THE
INDEPENDENT on order from- Mr.
John W; Hall, president of the West
port Paving Brick Co., of Baltimore,
Md. and were addressed and mailed by
THE INDEPENDENT at Mr. Hall's
expense. THE INDEPENDENT Is
equipped to do that sort of work and
Mr. Hall considered this method cheap
er than taking the work to Baltimore
and mailing it out from there. Mr. Hail
has not been in Elizabeth City since
the circulars were mailed and can not
protect himself against an unfair
rumor. In fairness and justice to him
this newspaper make this explanation
without his knowledge or suggestion.
