A Letter to Grandmother
Following is a letter to Mrs. Aaron

Oliver Boggs. "Granny" Boggs re
ceived the letter on her 88th birthday
and highly appreciates it:
My Dearest Grandmother: How are
you getting along during these sunny,
breezy March days? My sincere wish
is that you are enjoying them more than
any which have preceded them.
On yesterday morning I remembered
that your birthday was tomorrow. An
other year has been mercifully dealt to
to you by the Savior. Although you
are past the prime of your life, you have
helped many during the year just past.
You have been a blessing, not only to
your kinsmen, but to all with whom you
* have come in contact. Would that many
more of us were capable of doing the
good which you do!
From your life of A merican and Chris
tian womanhood I, with many others,
have learned immeasureable lessons of
love, cheer, and hope.
Let me rfeturn to you my hope of a
most enjoyable birthday-spent within
the confines of ' wvorthy son's love.
VWith many ot~hers my wish is that you
may see many more birthdays, each
surpassing in joy fimd good the one just
past. Then, when we have left this
iearthly abotle, may I be able to see you
in the heavenly joy of a birthday spent
in the sublime palacdof.our Father's
Again I"' assure you of my deep and
everlasting love; and with hopes of
your good health, and a very strong de
sire to be with yon~ soon, I close with
an humble blessing for your welfare.
Your loving grandson,
0. B. BOGGS.

Discusses Road Bond Issue
Dear Editor of The Sentinel: I thank
you for printing a copy of the. act pro
viding for issuing $250, for road im
provement in Picken county. I am
heartily in sympathy with bonds and the
purpose and design of it. I reluctantly
discuss same. I have no axe to grind,
but only desire the development and im
provement of Pickens county.
The only question I apprehend is the
constitutionality of the bond issue. It
seems to me that the people should have
been consulted in regard to the same,
and allowed to vote on it, because the
people have to pay the bond,. It is a
matter of extraordinary consideration
and very important to every man and
woman in the county. Chester, Chero
kee and several other counties are sub
mitting the matter of issuing bonds for
good roads to the people. By disallow
ing their vote on it it is now the princi
ple of taxation without representation.
This principle chiefly caused the Revo
Another constitutional question is that
all acts must contain only one subject.
This attempts to require the supervisor
to consolidate and combine his duties
with other oflicers when they require it.
It makes the supervisor subservient .to
the special commission, which may have
a tendency to diminish his efficiency and
duty and wveaken his authority. One
county officer cannot perform his duty
and at the Hame time pid andl assist
other offieers to do their duty. The re
sult will be conflict and confusion. For
illustration: suppose the supervisor has
hands and road machine repairing a road
in the eastern part of the county and
the special commission requires him to
discontinue that work and move to the
western part of the county: This wvould
defeat all of his plans where he wvas at
work. You can see at a glance the in
jury that would result. The constitu
tion never did contemplate such a com
bining of offices and duties.
The fact that the people did not votc
on the bonds will have a tendency to
embarrass the sale of the bonds on the
Our representatives deserve the com
mendation of our county for making an
effort to make road improvement, but
the act should be amended in some sec
tions, I think.
