Cliffside, Aug. 17.— Hello, friends. And we hope that everyone of you are indeed our friends, for we want to be a friend to you. What is better than having friends? Friends that can be trusted and depended upon in all kinds of weather.
As the day has been terribly, hot, we are celebrating tonight. It’s a pretty good idea to have a little social period whenever [doing] this job of writing for our Forest City Courier. Let’s all boost The Courier, for many people we know read from cover to cover. Pass that lemonade up this way please.
We are still guessing who the “Galivanting [Gallivanting] Gals” are. We send our greetings, gals…Wonder where Dewey Mahaffee disappeared to Saturday night?… We’ve discovered that some nice people live in Sandy Mush. What do you think Norris T.?…
We have an idea that a certain tall and handsome boy would be a good actor in “Girls’ Dormitory”… What boy in Mooresboro likes Lucky Strike cigarettes?… R. H. of Alexander drives a Plymouth to please a fair damsel who thinks these cars are swell … Sue Crowe won a cake in a cake walk. How lucky you are, my dear . . . Spud Crawford would make a good clerk as well as a postmaster…This knock-knocking business is going a little too far… Au Revoir until we meet again.
This is turnip sowing season. Let everyone take the advice of Ex-Gov. Gardner and plant a turnip patch.
For those who are suffering bodily affliction, please read the 107th Psalm seven times and then turn to Ecclesiastes 12:13-14.
