From Hon. C F. Johnson, Disi rljj
Grand Master Grand United Order ;
Odd Fellows, No. 23 Jurisdiction .
Alabama, and General Manager Union
Mutual Aid Association:
"I am delighted to add a word of
testimony regarding Hon., A. N. John
son, whose business I have watched
for years, noting its growth and de
velopment, and in my extensive trav
els, it was far in advance of any I
have seen in this country. I congratu
late the citizens of Nashville in cap
turing a race man of his ability, re
liability and stability, and hope his
operations will be attended with the
degree of success he merits and de
serves. I commend him to the Frater
nity as a worthy member of Hobart
Lodge, No. 4813, and faithful to the
Order in Alabama."
From Rev. A. N. McEwen, D. D., Ed
itor The Baptist Leader, President
State Mission Board of Alabama and
pastor of Franklin Street Baptist
'Hon. A. N. Johnson is one of the
best business men in this country,
and without a superior in embalming
and funeral directing. He kept the
finest funeral cars, carriages and am
bulance in Mobile. He is the greatest
directing genius In conducting funer
als I ever met. His handling of the
corpse, the mourners, the officials at
the home, the church and in procesr
sions always won my admiration. He
is peerless in his general conduct of
funerals, always on time and foremost
in the ranks of his profession. ua
is worthy of the highest success,.
"A. N. McEwen.'
From Hon. James T. Peterson, the
largest owner of realty in Alabama:
To Whom it May Concern:
"I have known the Hon. A. N. John
son since 1887, and during that period
of time I have had unlimited oppor
tunities of judging his character and
standing in this community among
both white and black, and I can can
didly say he is one of the leading men
of the race, not only in this section,
hut thronchout the entire state. He
bears what I might term an enviable
reputation among all classes of citi
zenship for honesty, probity of char
acter and open and straightforward
"Mr. Johnson is considered an ideal
business man, practical embalmer, a
thorough undertaker in every sense of
the word, being courteous, affable,
tlemanlv in his bearing. I know
