A Letter That Does
Us Good
Editor Pickens Sentinel:
Your letter to hand, stating you
could not send your paper any longer
without cash in advance; that your
paper and raw material was advanc
ing every day. I am aware of the
fact that you are following the law
and doing your duty. I can't do
without your paper if it cost me $5,
so I enclose you a brand-fire new $1
bill that Uncle Sam has just made
out of the high raw material. I sold
14 pounds of cotton to get this pa
per, while last year I only had to sell
8 pounds pay for my paper, so you
see it has cost about twice as much
this year as it did last.
This is a mighty pretty one dollar
billand I hate to see you leave me
so bad, but I want to put this hard
money where it will do the most
good. The dear old Sentinel has
come to my home so long I wil say
good-bye, dollar bill, go and bring
me The Sentinel another year.
Yours truly,

we are today and we scorned t
ask our friends in the North an

South obtain every penny the
