E. R. Alderman, Esq., Editor of Marietta Register:
Dear Sir: The enclosed relic of by-gone days sufficiently explains itself.
The annual holiday occasions open the way for recurring to any past events of interest in their day, but more especially, as in the present instance, where some of the original parties, spared to an advanced age are still living and duly honored in the present generation by whom they are surrounded.
Your home readers will appreciate this pioneer audit with special favor, all the names doubtless being well remembered by very many of your present citizens.
A. B. Walker.
