The Richmond Dispatch
October 17, 1868
The Dispatch once again shows us how much they truly hate the "scalawags" and "carpet-baggers"
The Dispatch is mistaken in saying that I abused my neighbors and friends. I have noneighbors, I'm ostracized ; and I'm sure I cannot have abused friends ; I have none, I'm ascalawag. Very respectfully, yours, L. M. Shumaker [It gives us pleasure to make thecorrection. You don't deserve any. ]
