Winters, Tex., July 25th

Editor Gazette: – Please allow me space in your valuable paper, which visits us once a week in this faraway western country, to let friends in old Union know what we are doing in this part of the world.

Well, this is a beautiful, level, fertile country, populated by good people from all over Texas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana, and they all say that they would rather live here than anywhere else. It is a healthy, delightful country to live in, barring fruits, melons, vegetables of all kinds – can have vegetables wet  or dry weather, as water is plentiful here. Just dig down twenty or thirty feet and put up a windmill, and you have all the water you need for stock, garden, etc. Almost anything in the way of farm truck grows to perfection here, ‘cept corn, and I never saw a more promising crop of corn, even on bottom lands in Louisiana, than we had here this year; but owing to the drought of last year and not getting an under season early this year, the dry weather of June injured the crop to a great extent. but our people don’t rely altogether upon corn, as they are sold for all necessaries of life. Everything is very promising and the people are happy. We have a fine school and churches to worship in.   C. W. Hester.
