Will try to write again and tell you all how the Point country is improving. We had two runaways this week, a pair of mules ran away with an empty wagon on Wednesday while the driver was eating his dinner, the result, of which, was a torn-up wagon. On Thursday another team ran with a loaded wagon to Mr. Robert Lee’s home where they were stopped by Mr. Sam Terral result – a new married couple. The happy pair were Mr. James Littleton and Miss Lottie Albritton. We wish them joy and prosperity in their wedded life.
