During my five years residence in Bakersfield i have never Felt called upon to read any outside City papers feeling that we get just As much news and service from the californian. In fact just this morning i told a solicitor for the los Angeles times that we did not i it need his paper in this City for we were Well served by you. With the Quot courier Quot in the morning Field you have added All that is needed and i shall always be glad to be a continual subscriber while i live Here. I want to add my thanks for your continual kindness to the churches and to the Church i serve. You have our Best wishes. Yours very truly Charles h. Hulme pastor first Christian Church
