in Charleston, has spent a few days in

previous engagement in Georgetown

so much are we impressed with his true
merit, that we have made a personal
request for him to make another visit
to us, because we know there are many
in this county who should be treated
by him. Doctor Noot is a gentleman
of education and travel, and it is a
pleasure to be in his company. We be
