0.1 Linear feet (12 letters and 11 envelopes)

1917-1919

Abstract:

Twelve love letters from Jim and an unidentified author to Allie Mae Edmondson of Heflin, Alabama.

Scope and Contents note

Ten letters from Jim to Allie Mae Edmondson of Heflin, Alabama, the earliest postmarked 15 October 1917 and the last 12 February 1918. Jim was living in Anniston, Alabama, and working for a hardware company. The letters' contents deal mostly with how much he misses Allie Mae and how blue he is at being alone. There are two additional letters, the envelope of one of them postmarked Memphis, 27 October 1919. These appear to be in a different hand from the other ten, but the content is much the same: words of endearment for his sweetheart.
