Treasure Chest Thursday: Letter from GL Jarvis to James Stout – 1909

As I am going through my grandmother’s papers, I recently found a letter from 1909.  It is from a GL Jarvis of Oklahoma to my Great-Great-Grandfather James M Stout.


March 2, 1909 Muldrow, Okla
Mr. James Stout, Carter, Ark.
Dear Brother,
As I have ben resting for a month or two I now feel able to resume my work in holding meetings. The last time I saw you, you mentioned several places where you wanted me to hold meetings Please give me the names up there points again and also give me the address of someone at each place so that I may send appointments to them. I have two meetings here to hold and I will then go to Brentwood, Ark and then to there other points which you mentioned before.
Hoping to ear from you soon. I am your Brother in Christ
G.L. Jarvis, Muldrow, Okla

    It could read that way or it may read Please write as soon as terribly or possibly and it might be continued on the back – I just noticed that it looks like it might be possibly be only the start of a sentence that carries over to the back page. I will check tomorrow to see if I have the original or if I only have copies. Some of my grandmother’s papers I have the originals but on some of them I was only able to make copies. I will post what I find out tomorrow.

    Goodnight all,
