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

The profession card of Drs Dorsey & Hamilton appears in this week's paper. We consider comment on the qualifications and merits of these men unnecessary. Dr Dorsey has resided here long enough for the people to know him, and besides having done a large and a successful practice, he has made many friends personally. While Dr Hamilton has lately become a resident of this city, he is not a stranger to all our people. He can readily furnish evidence of his skill and ability. His practice this year will doubtless extend over a considerable portion of the same territory in which he labored last, while at Pryor Creek. The Record predicts a large and lucrative practice for this new firm.
C C Tittle, of Webber Falls, has lately opened up a nice grocery store in the new building adjoining the Scales property. Mr Tittle was with Mr Scales quite awhile and is very popular and we predict a good business for him. He keeps a nice clean stock and would be pleased to have all his friends call on him at his new stand.

Elaborate preparations were made for this occasion and it was all that could have been desired by anyone. Many were present from abroad and no pains were spared to make them enjoy themselves. Everybody seemed merry and dancing was carried on until a late hour. Mr DeLeeseps gave supper and it was all that could have been desired and speaks well of him.
