New York, Dec. 14, ’89.
A few days since, an elderly lady
came into my office and said she had
seen a pamphlet containing a scries
of letters which l wrote for the
Times-Enter prise, and she wished
to know something more definite
about the advantages of the place as
a winter resort. She had some
thoughts of going to Los Angeles,
Cal. I gave her a picture of Thomas-
ville and its surroundings, told her I
had been to California, and had visit
ed nearly every southern resort, and
that on the whole I preferred Thom-
asvillc to them all. I told her that
the best evidence of the satisfaction to
visitors which Thomasville afforded,
was the fact that for seven or eight
years past T had met large numbers
of the same visitors every year. The
lady concluded that she would go to
Thomasville, provided I would he her
escort, to which I cheerfully consent

Our streets and stores arc crowded
with ladies making their Christmas
presents. I venture to say that in
the city of New York alone, a million
of dollars is spent in Christmas pics-

H. Bailey and Sallie II. Wallace, of
