Letter from Athens, Tennessee, dated Nov. 15, 1888 - Publ in the Gazette
I submiot the following for the benefit of my friends who read the Gazette:
I lift Warsaw, Ind., Oct. 9 and arrived in Dayton Tenn., on the 11th, stopping in Cincinnati on the 10th to
visit the Exposition which was grand. Getting refreshments at Dayton, we hired a hack and started for a fifteen
mile trip over the mountain to where we wished to stop. We reached the place about 4 o'clock in the evening, tried,
hungry and sleepy, as we had traveled two nights.
My health was very poor during my four weeks' stay on the mountain. The climate is too changable and the wind too
sharp and penetrating to be suitable for a person with bronchial or lung trouble, except a few months in the sumnmer
which is very pleasant. I left the mountain on the 6th of November and came to the valley where I find the climate
more suitable for me. I have improved some since I cane tot he valley. I cam to Athens on the 18th inst. and found
a very nice little town of about 3000 people and situated on the East Tenn. and Tellico railroads. Grant's Memorial
University is located here. It is a very fine institution. They educated young men for the Methodist ministry free
of charge There are also public schools both colored and white, and five organized churches, three white and two
colored. Business interests are lively. Northern and eastern people are coming here and property is increasing
in value very fast. Vacant lots bring from two to five hundred dollars each. I think I will like to stop here for
Send my paper to Athens, Tenn., instead of Brayton.
