My Dear Sir- Your man Friday,
who claimed to bo your re
porter and who claims to have
fully Interviewed me to bis satis

ho satisfied mo and my friends in tho
article which came out in your paper
a few days subsequent to Ills visit to
McKInney. In that beautifully writ
ten article bo says my bieath smcllcd
so badldy with the mixture of onions
and garlic, that ho, poor fellow, could
hardly survive the Interview. Tbo fow
words passed between us was no inoio
willingly concluded by him than by
inyselt, for I was buffering fiom tbo
stencil that arose from his stomach,
the combination which I consider far
worse than that of onions aud garlic,
viz: A rotten politician as he Is, with
a rotten burnt ns ho has, and brimful
of rot-gut whisky as lie was that day. I
say God bo meiclful to the
man that could long endure the smell
that came from him on that occason.
He Is certainly the snincono that re
ported me in Austin playing poker,

Now, Mr. Editor, 1 have no hard
feelings against you, for well the peo
ple know that papers of your sl.e must
live by publishing lies raked up by
such loafers as the ono ou sent to
