* * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Dear Mr. Editor anal Readers of The
Please do not judge by my delay
with ihis letter that it is an indication
that I have forgotten to thank the
many kind s;ubscribers for their as
sisance extended to my Mother in her
work for the automobile. You will
each recall that I wrote in my first
letter if you would just hold your
Subscriptions until Mother could get
to see you that we would certainly go
over to see my Grandpa and Grandma
Mloorhead in Union County in the au
tomobile for the Christmas holidays.
Well sure enough we did, and Daddy
left word at home for Santa Claus to
just come over there, so on Christmas
morning my Aunt Belle, who teaches
school at lickory 'T'avern, opened the
parlor door just before Grandma's an
nouncement for breakfast, and there
I beheld a most beautiful tree with
lots of pretty things which Old Santa
had brought all the way from Gold
ville for me. Santa had also been no
titled that a little first cousin of mine
would be there too, but at, the last
minute Grandma had a letter from her
Mother stating that her Daddy's col
lections had been so poor they could
n't make the trip. Her Daddy is a
physician in Beaufort so I guess there
are other physicians who can sym
pathize with this poor old Daddy.
Well, Santa left a whole lot of bun
dles there for Syvie Moorhead Hughes
anyway, and Grandma had a time
keeping me from tearing into them.
Syvie ia only nine (lays younger than
mie, she will be two year~s old on Jan

prloposition which I made priior to the

we would take the three next highest
who did not win any of the prizes on
a trip to Greenville, etc. I 'phoned to
rho Advertiser ofilce this morning to
flnd out for sure the names of these
three. They are, Mrs. Victor Weath
ers, Mrs. J. A. Wofford (Aunt Kate),
and Master Albert Dial. Now, we are
ready to make this trip at any time,
but since Aunt Kate had such an awful
time with the rain some weeks ago,
Daddy says let's wait until warm
weather and when the weather is
more settled, and since it is warmer
on the front seat Daddy says Aunt
Kate has got to sit beside him. In
fact I think Daddy has kind of fallen
in love with Aunt Kate on sight un

I want to express my sincere re
