Mr. W.O. Saunders, Editor and Publisher
The Independent, Elizabeth City, N.C.
Dear Mr. Saunders: -
Permit me to express my congratulations on your issue of The Dare County
Homecoming Edition of The Independent, a copy of which I am in receipt of
and have thoroughly read and digested with marked interest.
Expository in the most complete detail of the great historic event the
edition commemorates, the issue in its entirety presents a mechanical
mastercraft as well as a comprehensive production of journalism which
justifies the eminence attained by your paper as one of the highest order
in the rank of the weekly journals of the South.
With best wishes for its continued progress and success, believe me.
Very truly Yours,
Van Patten, Inc.
Tried His Darndest [Dandiest] To Smile
[Caption] HERE then is the latest photo of
"W.O." Himself. It was a hot day, the air was close in the photographer's
studio, the perspiration was running in rivulets from the hairless dome of
the editor. "W.O." did his darndest [dandiest] to smile and the picture here is the result.
