Jeer Mister Banner : In your last
paper I sees you goes agin Clarindon.
When I. went for the Banner last
spring, it was because I thonght you,
weunt, lbr Wesley and our Court House..
Bit, now you. has turned your coto
and changed your briches, and it takes
a smart feller like myself to no you
as the same Mister- Banner. All you
has sed agin our Court blouse is trash,
and as I iearn one of your Big Law
yers in Sumtervillo say, is nothing but
pomposity in the ingus, and thunder
in the throte. I is it is true Mister
Banner a No Nothin and I does go
agin lurriners and abolitioners and all
that sort of nonsense ; but I does no
e; ugh to bleve that nun but the Law.
yers goes agin our Curt House, and tiht t.
tecause it makes big fees and ceeps the
people a watin on ema to git a chance to
pay on muny. But what rite have you.
Alister Banner to say a word agii Clar
indan'? I. thought yore paper. was for
Clarindon. is well us for Clairmont.
But if you gos to treat us like furriners
in that way, why we will soon have
a Banner as well as a Court House to
ourselfs in Claringdon, Why don't
you now .3Mster Banner that all the
peple in Claringdon is for the Court
House; and what does you want.
em to go to yore furrin Cort
IIouse for ? Why there are my frend
Capten Mosos Benbow, and all the
Benbows, and the Brocks, and the
lRagins, and the Stukes', and Docter.
r i "g, and Squire Reynolds, and the
Ke3ys, and the Weeks', and Doctor
Rich, and Docter MeCaully, and the
liamnes', and the Butlers, and the
Brogdons, and the Gunes', and the
Blackwells, and the Nelsons, and the
F rk Black River, and Captin Ganeca,
and time flarvinsand Docter ingram,.
and the Richardsons, and the Burgess'
and the Timdals, ar.d the Connors, and
the Mannings, and the Warshums, and,
the Gibbons', in Lower Salem, and all'
the peple, and all the no nothins, and,
the rich and the poor this side and
tother side Black River and Puddin.
Swamp, spicietly, our reprasentativo
little Docter :SQm, who you no is a.
trump and a legunary.
Now Mister Banner I want to no if
the peple of Clarendon want to eetch
a fine trout in Cudo Lake or tickel fish
in Bruinton or Pudden Swamp, why
you shoud lorce em to go all the way
to Clareni.Ount tWo dip for smnali kats inl
the miud puddles of Pocotalliger. 0
3/ister Banner you is certainly rong
in this rispect., and if I owe you any
thing, send down your account to
rights 1'. O. and I will pay it, but dont
pretend to comxe over me with sich:
contrap-hions as these. Well but you
say you luva us Mister Banner, is the
reason you cant part with usi Well I
cant say that I Juyvs so hard or so much
as all that cormes to, but may be I
would, if I got. ail the fce- and-the
prollits and you had to pay em. But
Lurn it this way Aister Banner. and t
1iui feared you wud not have sich a
moustrus Iuv fi)r us. Well after al.,
it ant sich a mighty partin Mister
Banner as you wud make out. We
wud hav so much to due at our own
Court louse, that your L.awers wud
conic down to help us; and if therse
any of you we cant git down, why we
wud send a Branch of the Nourth Ei
turn Hale llode tolfech em. But dont
talk yore blarney to usiister Banner
about Juvin us too much to let us go.
Faro sed the sanme thing to Moses, but
he want luled by it and I want nether.
King Go rge sed the same thing to
Ginerel Wash~linton, but lie dident
bleve him. No. miy dear .Aister L'an
ner if we was both pua in the same
krib when we was little boys, and we
growed to lh rge for it to hold us to.
gether, I think I wud show not only
my luv but tmy purhiteness, by getiu
upi an levein it all to yourself. If you
luv uts then Mister Bc~nner let us stay
in our ownm County where we want to,~
stay ; and if y ou luv the pephe of Clare
mount elere away the rubish of Claren
don Lawsui s, an~d let them have a qui
et. time and a short turn to thiemselfs..
That is the genuin way to luv us ; and
to huv thenm, Mister Banner. But if~
you luv the Lawyers, and I hope Aus.
ter Baaner you is not one of em, or if'
you is, that you is not much of a one,.
tor they aimt no ways.to my likens,
then try to keep. us together in strife
anid confusion, where tis all pay and
no protis, al. eekspense and no gane,.
all uimne and nothin saved, and the
Buzzards is the furst, and the last ab.
Now I hope ister Banner you will
publish this as you done my letter of
last yere ; for if it is true, why the
tiruth ort to be spuken ; and if it Is not
true, then it ort to be comnradicted ;
and if it be tu ekspensive to you to
print it, send down your Bill to
Wrights Bluff P. 0, to my signitter
and it will be paid for as alsadvertise.
