Eighteenth Year - Number (Missing)

Marlin, Texas, Wednesday, December 25, 1907


Letter From The Philipines.


    The Democrat is in receipt of a letter dated April 30, from Bolivar Falconer who is a member of the civil service bureau for the Phillipine (sic) Islands.  Mr. Falconer says that the temperature there is very high now and expects there will be some suffering among those not yet accustomed to that climate.

    His brother, Albert, who spent several weeks with homefolks here, arrived at Manilla the day the letter was written.  He returned via the northern route, going as far north as the Aleutian Islands, encountering much snow and ice.  Both these young men are Marlin boys who have, by their attention to business and their ability, gained responsible and lucrative positions in Uncle Sam's service.
