Albany, Ga., May 19, 1935.
Here is a little note book and pencil put out
by Yancey Tractor Co., that I thought might come in handy to
Also the latest chain letter.
The ACL hoard (rr).
The above letter is from a file, closed in 1935, assembled by the railroad police of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. The ACL merged with the Seaboard Coast Line in 1967 and both are now part of the CSX Railroad (1998). Jim Fisher, of Charleston, S.C., was cleaning out the files when he saw one of my ads for chain letters and sent the items to me (DWV). The file contained ten money chain letters, two parodies of money chain letters and an office humor item ("That leaves you to do the work"). All date from mid 1935. The chain letters circulated mostly in Georgia and Florida and show close relationships. Items from this "ACL hoard" are designated by an "rr" after the date in the archive file name.
