Well!  Well! Tom—we mean our old friend, Tom Hargis, of Kingston—now ain’t you gone, went and done it?  We want to apprentice that boy of your’s.  Is he about stout enough to work the press?

Cartersville, Ga.
September 8th, 1869.

Mr. Editor: --As there has been no plan proposed, for the meeting, on Saturday next, to work on the Graveyard, I can state that it is thought proper to meet at the Methodist Graveyard first, at eight o’clock, as there is more work to do, in cleaning off that ground.

Let those, who cannot go, send a hand.  Ladies and gentlemen, old and young, are expected.  The gentlemen will carry tools to work with, and the ladies will carry baskets containing—what they please to put in them.

A committee, appointed by the churches, or the ruling members, are expected to attend and direct the work.  Let no one stay away under any sort of excuse, for all are invited and all are expected.  Let us do our duty and we will be glad of what we accomplish.

T. M. Compton.
