In reply to a letter from a friend

Eggs are so piontifull now ii
inevitable and1( everyP votor in th<
county cou ld beo suppliedl by the
State. TVhe Sentinjel c'ompllainod
sometime ago, flhat tihe voters ask~
for eggs and thue State gave them
scorpions. We do not remember
what season of the year that tho~
voters were clanorous for eggs.
but presumb fromn the remarks of
the Sentinel that it was in scowX
p)ion season. Fruit out-'of season,
is a thing out of reason, and it
isesthat hen fruit is no0 excel)
tion to the rule. It has always
been a puzzle to us, why~the voters
of Pickens county were asking for
eggs as5 the Sentmotl states, and it
was cruel im the State to deny
them, if they wvanted theni to mix
with their blind tiger liquor. A
