told her I would do lt, and that is
what I did. 1 came to Anderson and
then went to Pelzer, where 1 found
employment for mysolf and the girl.
When b went home, n:o told her fath
or that she was going to leave and ho
got mad about lt. They had been hav

Commerce tho iir^t time. I told the
girl ? had gotten her a Job, and she
uh'anked me for lt, saying that she
wanted to go U. South Carolina with

left Commerce soon after that and
She came with TIS. That ia where I
