according to your special published
new rue will pay for the Post oie
year. I feel greatly interested in
forthcoming history of Snyder Co.
which you propose to publish in the
Post. This alone ought to bring
you many new subscribers, and the
advantages ot your special low rate
to subscribers is a double induce
ment. I venture to say it will bring
you many hundred new subscriltcrs.
I am also very well pleased to
see th- effort made by our hiMorieal
society ofSnyder Co. It isecrtainly
a move in the right direction; a be
ginning should haw been made years
ago, but it is never too late to pre
serve of what hi.-tory we still possess,
and will be able to hand over to
future generations and interest th"
present. Were I at home, I would
gladly loud a helpinghand. 1 might
be able to assist to some extent, as I
am in possession ol genealogical
manuscripts gathered some yearsago.
In conclusion I can only sav to my
old friends, "(!o on with the good
work, in such a way that we may Id
able to tell future generation:- what
the pat and present has been doing,
of its success and of its failures, ot
its pleasures and sorrows and of its
