Just think of it, brothers! There are
fifty-three Saturdays and consequently
fifty-three paydays in this good year

Sundays was in 1876--Centennial year.

set on end in the pan and a fire made
under it, The blaze burned out above
the top of the novel heater, and thus
they had light as well as warmth.

her splendid mail facilities, would be a
good time for us to mention Pleasant

Editor Sentimul: Please allow me spat'e in
, your paper to speak a word to any Inquiring
friends throughot the county, and most especi
aly to return thanks to each and every one of
my friends who so kindly remembered me and
visited me during my long and serious illness
since last September. I sincerely appreciate
and thank them for their great kindness in so
faithfully helping wait on me through the long,
weary weeks of suffering: also the many tokens
of esteem sent and brought by those who came
to inquire after me and showed their willing
ness to lend a helping hand whenever needed.
I earnestly pray God's blessings on them all,
and hope they may never be called upon to
endure the pain and suffering I have recently
pas.sed through. To those of my old war com
rades who came to see me while I we too ill to
receive them (Messrs John ,lulian, Porter aind
Griffin), I wish to say I appreclate your interest
in me and my condition as only an old veteran
can, and am glad to say I am sufliciently recov
ered to receive and enjoy the visits of my
friends once more, and I shall be very much
pleased to have you make me a visit now, as it
will be some time before I can hope to be out
again, tho, thru the hand of a kind Providence,
I air able to be up most of the time, and enjoy
seeing my friends once again.
Again I thank my many kind f riends for every
attention and interest and attention shown me.
I thank God for fils loving tenderness and re
storing hand that has ever been my stay and
help in my darkest hours of trials und sirering
and I pray ilis guidance over us all till lie eOlIs
us. one by one, to "cross over the river and rL:t
icati the shade of the trees," and then
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I aive crossed the bar."
