A SLIGHT MI ST A h'E?
Some one has received an ttritmy
mous letter from sonic one else, and
tho party who received the letter is
strangely beating about for the writer.
He has addressed two gentlemen in
town over the signature of "A
Friend" and "Customer" to each
anonymous communication asking for
facts about somebody or something
(not stated in letters) and asm ring
secrecy, &c. The party addressed
over the signature of "A Fricud,"
desires to say, that under uiuoty-uiuo
circumstances out of a hundred
unonymoux letters arc not worth any
notice, and information of any kind
sent anonymously is either too vague
or treacherous for the writer to ven
ture his name to it. If, however, the
writer will confer in person with the
two gentlemen addressed he has
assurances from their character that
I.is suspicions (about some one or
something) will bo confidentially
treated, if they refer iu any way to
the i.ilcrcsts of tho gentlemen ad
