Christmas greetings have come to use from Mr. and Mrs. John Brinkman, of Waycross, Ga., and from Harry Carter, of Portland, Ore. Mrs. Brinkman writes that she is not well, suffering a heart ailment, but that Mr. Brinkman is quite well, and business good, and the weather if fine. Mr. Carter writes that he has been a bit under the weather - a mighty east wind of several days duration put that glorious climate on the shelf for a while and put Friend Carter into the house with a case of grip. He states that he was interested in Frank LaFavre’s letter in a recent issue of the Enterprise, as he was a schoolmate of Mr. LaFavre back in the old school house, and they were seat mates in the double-seat days. Both Mrs. Brinkman and Mr. Carter extend holiday greetings to all old friends here.
