The photos in my unknown photo collection could come from either my mother’s family (Treat, Lawrence, and related family lines) or my father’s family (Thompson, Stout, and related family lines).

Also, my Great-Aunt Mabel (Stout) Parsons was a school teacher in the Springdale schools for many years so some of the photos may be of her students.

Amanuensis Monday: Stout Canning Company Letter

Stout Canning Company
Kingston
Arkansas

Gentlemen:

We are about to get a canners finance company set up and in this connection would like for you to meet the writer at the Mountain Inn Hotel in Feyetteville, Wednesday night, July 8th at which time we will have dinner together. The present idea is that each canner can establish a line of credit up to the amount of twenty times their stock so that it is proposed that we start off by each canner paying 10 per cent of the amount of stock he wishes to take. This is one of the preliminary matters we would like to get out of the way Wednesday night.

It is impossible for the writer to see every canner individually so we are trying to get groups together and get this all done next week. This is very important so please arrange without fail to be there at that time.

Yours truly,

Canners Exchange, Inc.

Amanuensis Monday is a daily blogging prompt used by many genealogy bloggers to help them post content on their sites.

An Amanuensis is a person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another. Amanuensis Monday is a daily blogging theme which encourages the family historian to transcribe family letters, journals, audiotapes, and other historical artifacts. Not only do the documents contain genealogical information, the words breathe life into kin – some we never met – others we see a time in their life before we knew them. A fuller explanation can be found here.

Amanuensis Monday is a popular ongoing series created by John Newmark at Transylvanian Dutch.
