Content, I stopped at, t few houses on
the way to see whether. I could engage
a few eopies of the History of Edge
field. I secured several ilkines, sole
on the way to Saluda, somlie at Saluda,
anid somec on my return to Newberry by
another rolite. One placo at which I
stopped I found to be the home of Mr.
Iluiet,i a grandson of my old friend
Ceorge Hiliet, nd his wife Dorathca,
at whose imarriage supper 1 was a
'nest, uld it sonl of Mr.s. IIulet of the

htou' when I stopped at Nlr. Hulet.'s,
andi he and hils good lady invited mao to
utiartake of the midday mieal with theml,
whivh I did, and which I heartily en
joyed, especially the glass of butter
milk, which was dellciouS,--as good as
the best, ghts of buttermilk or anything
else I ever drank. After dinner, bid
din,g my ost and ho.tess farewell, I
re4umed my tramp. About three niles

at seat., so that I rode the last thiree

vomipanion was Mr. Forrest, whom I
founld to he very colservatiive in his
views, and who had been opposed all
the tite to the fortmation of the new
count-y. T~sympathized with him, as I
foutnd hil, like myself, always in a
mitority. Aid the minority in many
elases proves to he right. In the fortia

matjorit.y will prov'e to lie tright.
