MR. EDITOR: Your Whitmore Lake correspondent in last week's Courier inadvertantly omits to mention many of the attractions of Whitmore as a summer resort. lts reputation is getting tobe more than local. With the G. T. R. R. on the north and the T. & A. A. li. R. nearly completed on the south, in addition to the pleasant drives it will be easily accessible, and offers to those seeking rest and quiet the attractions of a place of great natural beauty, with opportunity lor out-door life, company enough for enjoyment. With dress and style for comfort rather than show. A fully picturesque lake, framed like a gem by beautiful hill?, shady groves and pleasant drives; with excellent fishing for those skilied in angling and bait, sailing and rowing and the most lovely water lilies. Your correspondent, a guest of the Clifton House, writes np the doings of that popular hotel with its well earned reputation. The old Lake house was reopened last year by that genial and popular young proprietor Allie Stevens (son of Albert Stevens who kept the first hotel at the lake forty years ago) and well known as an assistant at the Clifton House two or three years ago. A day recently spent at the Lake house was so full of enjoyment as to be long emembered. The cleanliness and neatess pervuding the establishment - its well spread tables, obliging host, agreebly contraeting with the iew previous ears under other management. The fforts of the present proprietor, to make first class in comfort and enjoyment f patrons and worthy of support, geem o be appreciated. Guests were present rom Ann Arbor, Cleveland, Jackson, Ypsilanti, Plymouth and Detroit. Widenmann's beautiful grove on the ast Bide is reached by a fine drive skirtïg the lake, or by suil or steamer. It ould take too much space to do justice o the vaiious other points of interest, ncluding the "Colleseum," the "Casino" which now does duty for the G. T. staon, the tititype gallery, etc.
