TWO MILFORD BOYS
MEET IN FAR EAST ,
Mrs. George Manlove, wife of for- j
mer State Representative George ;
Manlove, of South Walnut street, Mil- ;
ford, received a letter last week from
her son, Ted Manlove, who is serving
with the U. S. Armed Forces in the
Far East. Enclosed with the letter
which Mrs. Manlove kindly allowed
the Milford Chronicle to reproduce,
was a picture of Ted and another
Milford youth now serving with the
colors, Paynter Sharp, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Garfield Sharp, of near Mil
ford.
Boys in the Army from a small
city like Milford do not meet every
day, especially when they are 15,000
miles from home, so the Milford
paper reproduced the photo of these
two Milford boys, who are fighting
for you and me and thousands of 1
miles away.
The letter follows:
September 5, 1012
Dear Mother:
1 have received the late,-!. < bromci<-
and also the dul'ont paper. 1 wa*
*ur prized to -vee my picture in it
1 have not received any letter?’, for
quite some time. My mail ha fallen
off for some reason.
Weil, I finally met Paynter Sharp
in town the other day. He hasn’t
changed in any way, same old Payn
ter, full of fun. He sure is a grand
guy. We did more talking than any- 1
thing else. I guess I met him a lit
tle late, as he tells me that he will
soon be on the move again. I was
sorry to hear it, as I enjoyed myself j 1
more than any time since I left the
East Coast and that covers plenty of J
time.
Paynter suggested that we have
our picture taken together and
thought it would be nice if you had it
put in the Chronicle —how two home
town hoys met somewhere in the Pa
cific War Front.
Say hello to everybody. This is
a short letter, but as you know' I i
haven’t much to write about on ac
count of being censored. I will sign
of for this time.
Well, Mom, you and Dad take care
of yourselves, bye-bye. i
Love,
Ted

NEW BUILDING TO BE
ERECTED AT HOSPITAL
Thanks to the energy and devo
tion of chairmen of the district com
mittees in the hospital auxiliary, and
the generous response of the people j
of Northampton county, and 1 fiends ,
at a distance, the auxiliary has been
able to buy from James Rogers an
acre of ground adjacent to the hos
pital. We hope before long to begin
a very neecssary addition which will
give space for a larger maternity
section, and also provide quarters for
nurses, releasing needed space in the
main building. When a hospital
equipped to accommodate five babies
is called upon to welcome eleven at
once, something needs to be done.
The succesful drive on “Hospital
Day” August 12th netted $575.00.
The remainder of the price of the
land, $875.00, was made up from
funds in the auxiliary treasury, ehiei-j
ly the $226.00 made on “Tag Day.”
From the beginning the hospital
1 has been doing what seemed impos
-1 sible, and now at a most difficult j
time, it is starting something else.
We hope it can be said of us: “It
couldn’t be done ,but they did it.”
Especial thanks go to Miss Ann
Wilkin , who not only collected SH.bO
t iji aDo rendered valuable usi "
in helping organize trie collection pro

KENT COUNTY PAYS OFF
$1,000,000 BOND ISSUE
The Commissioners of Kent Coun
ty, on Tuesday of last week, made the
final $15,000 payment on Kent Coun
ty’s million dollar road bond issue
which was passed at a special elec- 1
tion in 1928.
Tax payments, since that time,
have been hard but the general opin
ion is that it was money well spent.
The issue built most of the nine foot I
concrete roads in the county which;
still connects the various towns and
sections of the County. Only those
who remember these muddy roads
can appreciate the value of the issue.
