  3. Books Written by Clarence Wilbur Taber.


    O.E. Mesick, president of the Potter County Historical Association, has just received a large amount of material relating to the early history of the County from Clarence W. Taber of Philadelphia,PA.

    Mr. Taber, a former cashier of the Potter County Bank and early homesteader in the northern part of the county, contributed several articles in the POTTER COUNTY NEWS at the time of the Golden Jubilee and in that way has done a great deal to preserve the early history of this community. He wrote the book BREAKING SOD ON THE PRAIRIES which deals with the experience of the early settlers in this part of the state.

    For quite a long time Mr. Taber was manager and medical editor for the F.A. Davis Pub. Co. at Chicago. Recently, in the way of a promotion he transferred to the Philadelphia headquarters of the concern.

  5.   Letter from Mary Louise Taber to CWT.

    July 9, 1887: Dear Brother Clarence, I wrote you a letter a few days ago but thought I would write you these few lines. Richard says if you would like to come on this way he will try to get you here if you are willing to come. So write soon as possible and let us know. We can get you something to do and it will not be half the paid work that you have to do there. Write and let us know as soon possible. You would have a better chance of enterring college here. For the colleges here loan young students money to pursue their course through college and helps them all they can. The churches take up a yearly collection for this student fund which is a great benefit to them. Now Dear Brother think well over the matter and pray over it and may God direct you aright. Excuse these few lines and answer soon as I shall be anxiouly waiting to hear your decision. I remain your ever affectionate sister Mary L. Beebe. P.S. If you decide to come I shall make it as pleasant as I could for you here and do just as much as Ma would or more. Mary.
