of November- a genuine private will
be * 1 1 attendance. It is a noticeable
fact that in most of the reunions since
ilia war, the participants have been
generals, colonels and majors, while a
few have ranked as low as captains.
It is generally supposed that the . pri-
va es weie all killed, as they cannot
be lound now. Jf you want to see .a
genuine ntivale, one who struck the
gut for four years, carried a musket,
blanket, three days rations and forty
rounds of cartridges, come to Thom*

no admission to see this, perhaps only
living specimen of a genuine piivate.

Glad to get hack, too. Thomasville
really feels like home, and there’s no
place like that. But the goods! they
are coming; be here next week. A
big stock'! Well, no. Mine is not
the largest. The others have that
size, but it is large enough, and still
better, all personally selected, choice
goods from the cream of New York
and Baltimore markets. They arc
the latest styles, bought low down,and
will be sold the same. This means
that I want to do a good share of the
milliucry trade this season. It is said
to be impossible to please everybody :
maybe so; but there’s nothing like
trying, and if J gel the chance the
cliort will not be wanting. Think
over the matter, and decide if it is not
well to give at ieast a share of your
trade to one who is anxious for it,and
will do her best to please.
