Scope and Contents note

The collection contains empty miscellaneous envelopes. Many of the envelopes are addressed to Bettie Compton of Demopolis and Sweet Water, Alabama, and are are postmarked between 1939 and 1945; most are from Lewis and Edward Compton from their various military bases during World War II. Another large group of envelopes are addressed to Bettie Simmons, also of Demopolis, and appear to be from the post Civil War era. The final large group of envelopes are War & Navy Department V-Mail envelopes, postmarked between 1942 and 1945. Two of the envelopes are clearly addressed (one to James O. Crosby of Garnavillo, Iowa, the other to Miss Mary L. Niles of Wyoming, Iowa) while the third is extremely cross-hatched and virtually unreadable.
