Previous to going to Brevard two years ago, I was associated with Mr.
Garlington in the publication of the Hustler for two years. Our old
arrangements have been resumed and I am proud of the opportunity to return to

appreciation, which I once enjoyed to a satisfying degree, and my efforts will
ever be for the upbuilding of Henderson county.
