the business activity in the town
of Sherwood. It has been 1 early
four yeirs since this paper was
launched on the journalistic sea,
and the voyage at Times has
been a rough one; many a storm
has been encountered. As pilot
I have stood by the wheel
through calm and through storm.
I have neither side-tracked nor
back fit -pped, but have steered
straight ahead. What has been
accomplised through my efforts
remain to tell the story. I have
at all times aimed to be fair, end
still believing I was right in the
things I stood for I have no re
grets or apologies to makev I
have been a friend to everybody
and tried to command their
fi-ieniLdiip in return. In some
instances I Jailed; very naturally
so, and (bono whom 1 befriended
most are my rsatest enemies,
as is ho often the case. It is
gratify ing, however, to know that
my friends far out number my
enemies, which is further proof;
that the principles I stood for,
were sound.. Because of these
friends Sherwood will always 1 e
a dear- spot to me and my family. '
We h; ve become to love the peo
ple and w ill always feel a deep
interes t in them. So it is with
regret that we are 'compelled to
lasve Sherwood by having accept
ei a c, II to a higher vocation in
life, that, of the ministry. In
these few parting vttirds I wish
to thauk the friends of the
News-Sheet foV their generous
support and their comforting
words in times of dispair. Dur
ing my career with the News
Sheet it has, I believe, moulded
sentiment in Sherwood that will
go down in the town's history
and tend to 'cause recollections of
its strenuous career for perhaps
a century to come- So in sever
