Mr. Marion McCreless Writes
Editor The Advertiser:
The first newspaper I ever read,
and still love it though I don't often
get to see it.
Well now, I am not writing this
for publication although you can dis
pose of it as you like. If it goes to the
waste basket I must say too, that the
first letter I ever wrote was to the
Advertiser some time last year, and
to my surprise it was published and
I have often been asked to write
again but have never gotten my con
sent till about a month ago when my
brother, E. M. McCreless of Colo
rado, Texas, came by to see me after
a visit to South Carolina.
He told me of so many things and
people he saw I thought I would
write again though I can't write of
anything only my recollections of
South Carolina, which would be too
much to put in a letter though there
are many things I would like to speak
of. I asked in my former letter whose
son the editor of the Advertiser was,
but he never told me whether he was
the son of James, Bob, or Giles
Mims, but I have found since that he
was not the son of either of them. I
didn't know his father, but I knew
the Minis family. Brother told me he
was the son of Miss Kate Lan dr um.
Well now, I don't know whether she
?remembers much about us or not but
I remember her and think I can con
."vince her that I do. Her mother was
an invalid several years, however,
..she would feel able to take a ride
sometimes, and she would make it
. convenient to stop and see my moth
ar and sometimes Miss Kate would
rbe with her and I can hear my moth
.er now talking about,-Miss Kate be
ing such a pretty and good girl.
Yes, I remember her youngest sis
ter too, for I went to school with
her,, Miss Pamela. There are many
other things I could mention in the
, way of recollections but it would be
too long. There are a great many
names and people that I would like
to mention but can't all, but will
c-nention a few. Brother said Mr.
?Cush Shepherd took my address.
Would be glad to have a letter from
"him as any body else in South Caro
Now next I am going to tell you
of the reunions I have visited and
.who of South Carolina I met. At
Dallas I met J. Y (Pony) Yeldell,
. James Minor, Dr. B. Ht Teague, John
Witthen of Arkansas.
At New Orleans, Alex Robertson,
Dr. B. H. Teague, Thomas Carwile.
Don't know whether there is any of
'his family living or not. If not I
^Iknow he has friends living and I want
'so. tell them what sort of a man he
although that was my first ac
quaintance with him. When I parted
with him he said "Goodbye brother,
God bless you." He was the first
?ri??? ?Ver said that to me. You know
I thought he was the best man that
At Mobile I met two of my com
pany, William Carson and Giles
Chapman, both now dead. At Macon,
1 met Giles Chapman, Sam Pressley,
-James Turner of Johnston.
At Tulsa, Oklahoma I met Dr.
'Teague, Henry Roughton, James
Tompkins. ? ; *~
At Houston this y'??r' I ffl?t B? H.
Teague, Laurence Harris, now ?f
Houston, J. E. Eldred Harling, now
of Belton, Texas, two of Capt. Har
mon's sons of Lexington where my
friend Wright now lives.
Hand this to Mr. Mims, tell him to
. zany it home with him and read it
? at his leisure and tell any body and
? every body to write to me at Lewis
. ville, Texas, Route 2. Howdy to
i everybody there.
