When the print is so faded that it cannot be read <.....> will be used . All transcription will be as found in the paper, misspellings and all
Purchasing old newspapers on microfilm is expensive and abstracting them is very tedious and time consuming. Therefore I ask that you respect my hard work and do not copy or make any use of these abstracts - except for the information that relates to your own family. I am making this information available to you for free, in turn I ask that
You Please Respect My Work on Your Behalf
If I find that my work is being stolen and placed on e-mail lists, other web sites, etc. etc. Then I shall stop making them available for free.
If you find them somewhere other than here please let me know. Thanks [an error occurred while processing this directive]

Advantages of Fort Gibson (continued from page one.)

In unity there is strength, and a town divided against itself cannot prosper. Then with unity as our watchword, the energy and business ability of the citizens of Fort Gibson can soon make the city the greatest in the Indian country.
