I FROM CHATTANOOGA. Lookout Point, July 31. Editor Gautte: I came to Chattanooga Ju'y 6th, aud made my way to Lookout Point among the clouds and found it cool aud pleasant. On last Saturday af ternoon I took in the valley in which Chattanooga is located. Upon inquiry of strangers in dif ferent portions of the city I was di rected to the Penny Saving’s Bank, which is entirely controlled by Ne groes. and it is a credit to Chatta nooga. I visited Mr. Dorris’ p’aceof busi ness and chatted a few moments. I found him a gentleman of culture. I was then direjted to Drs. Love and Perry’s office, the coming phy sicians of the city, where I was cor dially entertained. I then took a flight to the moun tain, aud on Sunday evening I was honored with a call in the person of J. Q. A. Erwin. Tuesday evening Lookout Point was visited by Drs. Love aud Perry, and Professor Hastings, accompaning some of Chattanooga’s fairest maids. Supplied with Field glasses they viewed the magnificent city of Chat tanooga below. Then the conductor called out ‘ all abode,” and we left for Suus< t Park and the Natural Bridge, and viewiug the sights of natures handwork we climbed the rocks and crossed the bridge. The conductor again called out “all abode,” and I left the happy party roaming in the mountains. You shall hear from me again soon Rover. Teacher’* Institute*. Huntsville, Ala., June 18, 1890.
