The STANDARD is in receipt of a communication from a little girl friend who lives in the St. Thomas neighborhood. She chronicles the death of Mr. John A. Wimsatt, a well known citizen; the illness of Mr. Martin Roberts and the return of Father Ryan, the good pastor of St. Thomas, from a visit to one of his sick parishioners near the knobs. Our little friend expresses herself as highly pleased with THE STANDARD, and like everybody else, extends her best wishes for our success. We appreciate her letter very much and hope to hear from her again.
