f . tf.,t.ti..'.a sr ' nwv-v WGKGR OA ! LY RECO R D WEDNESDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 6 i 41 i U Hickory, N. C, Sept. 4, 1922. Mr. James S. Holcomb, Sandusky, O., ' Dear Mr. Holcomb: Sturcfy Germans, seeking homes in the New World, obtained from King George grants of land hi North Carolina and trekked froni New York and Pennsylvania to the valleys of the Ca tawba river and its tributaries iri the foot hills, where they built rude homes in the clearings they made in the forest. That was the beginning of civ ilization in this part of western North Carolina, through which Daniel Boone and other pioneers hunted the deer and bear, trapped other fur-bearing animals along the streams and lived lives of many years 5 ' , Jl-' Wtihout realizing it, perhaps; they ipick ed out a section of country that was to become famous for its climate. Agriculture arid mariuf ab tuf-es in time were to produce great wealth, but this altitude, averaging 1,000 feet above the sea level, was to be the greatest asset. Transportation facilities hindered development; the east, nearer the coasti was thickly peopled before many per sons1 knew of the great northwest section of the state. For twentir-nve yearsMetshbrt period in ' the history of a state the foothills have begun to attract people for other reasons than agriculture and manufacturing. The purity of its water and the wholesomeness of its air, so greatly prized by residents, attracted people from every part of the cbuntry, with the result that the population has been welded with common interests. : Chief of these interests is climate. Here is to be found variety. Changes of temperature occur f rbqjuently V enough to prevent monotony the weather never remains at one extreme long at a time; the Head of winter is mellowed by a warm sun i and the heat of summer is tempered by fre quent showers alndb i absent the fog that detracts" f rorh Ihe rnounjtains ; here never occur those heavy mists which pierce to the skin in other favored sections of the land. Here is" to be found verdw year; out of doors violets bloom in January. The winter climate of this region is as attractive as summer,-the air, being dry, is bracing in either warm or cold weather. Here is to be found Na ture's great sanitorium, where thousands coming almost hopeless have found health and remained to do their part in the upbuilding of the country. Iri this f avored region tjie sun shines 300 days a year, the natural drainage is so good, f:he air so invigorating and the water so wholesome that physicians in less favored sections . advise their patients lo seek this section a medium be tween the extreme of the lowlands and the ex treme of the mountains. This climate, say those who have investi gated from Florida to California, most nearly ap proaches the .ideal of their longing.
