Flashback Friday

The Newnan Times-Herald

This letter to Mr. and Mrs. Earl Strickland and Employees of Strickland Market is from John Wallace, dated August 28, 1948.

The store would send grocery orders to Mr. Wallace while he was in the Coweta County Jail.

As a thank you, Wallace sent 11 pairs of socks for the men and a nice handkerchief for Mrs. Sara Strickland. Earl and Sara Strickland are the parents of Joe W. Strickland and Earlene Strickland Scott.
