Good and sufficient reason exists for Independent Journalism in this County. That is our Credo, first uttered in The Beaufort Tribune in 1876 by our founder, Winchell Mansfield French, who wrote these words while living in the old manse in which I now live. His words remain our Credo today, to wit:
It was an enigma to most people why this paper was started and but few have ever solved it, but there was to us a good and sufficient reason and the people who have sustained it have seen that there was a field for Independent Journalism in this County.
Winchell Mansfield French, founder and original publisher The Beaufort Tribune, November 22, 1876.
Good and sufficient reason still exists for Independent Journalism in this County.
