Etc. -- Brook Noble correction
Introduction | Source Documents | Other Sources | Photocopies | Back 

A lightly edited partial transcription of the Items of Local Interest column on page 1 of the 
21 Aug 1919 issue of the Simcoe Reformer newspaper.

We have been advised by Mr. Brook Noble of 257 Talbot Street, Simcoe, that an item appearing in last week's Reformer in reference to his refusing $300 for half an acre of tobacco was not correct, and very misleading.

Mr. Noble states that he has no tobacco at all (and doesn't even say that he smokes), and that if he had a half acre he would not be such a fool as to decline an offer of $300.

We apologize to Mr. Noble for misrepresenting him and had no intention of showing him up to the public under false colors.

The item was inserted in our columns as coming from a reliable source, and we are sorry that such was not the case.
