A FEW OPENING REMARKS
This is the first issue of the Jones Journal. It has been sent to all box
holders in Jones County in order that as near everyone as possible may see
just what the countyís new paper will look like. We naturally hope that you
like what you see and that you will give the Journal your support now and for
a long time in the future. Mrs. Rachel Cox of Pollocksville Route One is the
Editor of the Journal and will be in charge of the Journal office in the rear
of the Branch Bank Building in Trenton. She is being aided in gathering the
news of the county by Mary Belle Stott of Maysville, Mrs. Carey Waters of
Pollocksville, Mrs. Carl Tyndall and Richard Tyndall of Comfort and Mrs.
George Nick Nobles of Trenton. Our intention naturally is to make a living
income from this paper and its older sister The Lenoir County News. But while
doing this we also intend to give Jones County and interesting, informative
and constructive newspaper that it can be proud of from the beginning. We
donít pretend to think that we shall please everyone, but we shall most
assuredly do our very best to tell the truth consistently. If you have liked
this first issue, place your subscription now with one of our solicitors or
bring it to our office which shall be open Thursday-Friday and Saturday
morning of each week until further notice.
