Card From Mr Morgan.
To the Farmers who market their
cotton at Ed^efield :
As there is very little cotton being
marketed here now, and that which
is sold is weighed at the warehouses
for the buyersjl can not afford to re
main at Edgefield on expense, and
have decided to return to my home.
Knowing that the farmers under
stand my position, I do not believe
thev will censure me for this action.

sired end as the carrying of a well
selected assortment of good books
by Edgefield merchants.
Received Much Encouragement
The echoes that reached our ears
from different parts of the county
by letters and in person commend
ing the enterprise displayed in is
suing the sixteen-page Christmas
number of The Advertiser last week
are very encouraging to the editor.
If the people appreciate the in
creased expenditures and efforts that
we have put forth to give them a
high class paper from week to week
and will continue to respond in a
business way, the management is
willing to make additional outlay
for still further improvement.
