Editor Record : There is a, freshness and variety about the letters of your correspon dents from different parts of the county, that "unquestionably adds to the interests of the Record, and excites a desire within me to .contrib ute to Your columns. ' altu.ouEm it is hardly necessary that I should disclaim any pretentions io the li' entry merit which some oi your correspou dents are known to possess. I will by your permission, give a short sketch of a recent visit to friends in the western part of Randolph county. On our way we passed through Frankliusville, and noticed that Hugh i'aiKS iv-q lias ins new factory nearly, completed, and understood that he was north purchasing machinery for same. -We remained over night in Asuboi'o and enjoye the hospituble fare of Mrs. Page of Page s Hotel; also had the pleas ure of calling on your bro'her .Brad- shaw of the Courier, who seome ' over worked with the double task o running his valuable paper (iu the ab sence of lriend Hackney) and au swenu2 tue many puzaes, rnlaies .vt propounded by some of the kuowiu ones of "the ciiy." On leaving Ashboro we pvoceeded to the residence of that warm heart ed and popular fanner Samue JiGWis Jl.sq, wno lias nothmsf .oofjood foi a friend aud tries to ma tie everv one feel at home, and surely ve did feel at home with this very kind aud sociable family. Mi. Lewis's p'anta-tion is en Uvvharrie, and where I ask can a fiuer region be found in our own State, especially middle N. C V The lauds and climate most s ilubri-ons, and the people all that any one could, wish. They have the best roads and finest stock to be found in any county. .. o had the -pleasure of SJ.C Kil .T some ti, ne with those genial wntle- men Robert Lewis, Clay Ingram and Peter L. fchamburger, whudi will long be remembered, and oTtiins in the future my mind' will rev rt to those delightful days spent o i "old Uwharrie." I visited Concord camp grounds where the M. E. church holds annually a camp meeting; also filestores of Macon & Shaniburger, and Nev.by Bros. On our return we again stayed over night with fiiends in Ashboro' and can truly say we had a jolly good time, and left next morning for home where we arrived safely. I will forbear Mr. Lditor for what I have already written may be uu wel come to devil and reader. Hickory II ill. t
