Salutatory

To the patrons and friends of the Mountain Democrat, Greeting:

With this issue of the Democrat, which marks the beginning of the fifty-second year of its existence, the reins of government pass into untried hands. While I do not expect to reach the standard of literary excellence set by those who have preceded me, a failure on my part will not be from lack of interest or an earnest endeavor to please the patrons of the paper, and to advance the interests of this community and county …

Our county, so rich in natural resources, with the awakening of new enterprises leading to the investment of outside capital, has a prosperous future assured, and the Democrat will, as usual, be found in line, losing no steps in the march of progress.

It is with the kindliest feelings to all, which I trust are mutual, that I turn a fresh page in my experience, wishing you a happy and prosperous New Year.

(signed) MOLLIE CARPENTER
