Best in The State
WOODLAND MILLS, Ala., Jan 24, 1888
J. A. ROUNTREE, Editor ENQUIRER, HARTSELLE, Ala.
DEAR SIR:-- As I have never had the pleasure of meeting you, yet I have been reading your valuable paper, THE ENQUIRER, for some time and consider it one of the best papers published in the state and I respectfully ask you to send it to me for the year 1888. I will be in your town soon and call to see you.
I wish you great success in your business.
W. J. LOGGINS.

As I am a backwoodsman, slow at writing and worse at spelling, I will bring my letter to a close, by saying I wish the young editor of the ENQUIRER great success in his journalistic life.
If this finds the waste-basket may it rest in peace.
