     Dear Sir: In your capacity as editor of a paper given to amuse readers you are of necessity led to ridicule most everything of a public nature, and for several years it has to you appeared proper to do so with our late Chief Magistrate. I have read all you have printed and have been vastly amused at some of the cartoons you have printed, but occasionally have doubted the wisdom or propriety of some of them. I have now before me your issue as of the 26th, and I want to thank you for the manly and thoroughly honest editorial in same. I feel now that while you may be inclined to poke fun at subjects sometime serious, you are the right stuff at heart, and I have a few lingering doubts removed.

          Very truly yours,

Charles Williams.
