"STOP YOUR DiRTY SHEET."
HARTSELLES, ALA., January 18, 1895.
Editor 'TEXAS MiNER:
Stop your dirty sheet. We are Americans and Democrats
and don t want any teaching—from you. PAT PATTiLLO
The above is the "meat" of the letter.
Well, Pat, it was unnecessary to tell us you was an American,
for we would know it from your euphonious name. Your name
was sent m to us with others for a three-months subscription
without any charge. You received it until the time run out be-
fore you objected to our "dirty sheet"; but you are as welcome
to it as flowers in May. We suppose you read it, as you found
out (according to your lights) what we are. You are just the
kind of "America" that we don't want to like us. You may
possibly have heard about "placing pearls before swine"; and,
judging from your letter, that is probably what is the matter
Here’s what’s next.
