Letter to the Editor: Herewith my check in the amount of $3.00 in payment for my subscription to the Plumas National-Bulletin for the year 1930. In the Plumas National-Bulletin we have a newspaper that does not try to pull "big town stuff" on a country newspaper. Kindest regards for 1930. Yours truly, a loyal reader.
