Marion Herald - April 19, 1887

GlenAllen, Ala. April 6, 1887 - Sir, as the people round about Glenallen seems to be very timid about writing, I will endeavor to give you a few dots.   The people was engaged planting corn last week, we are having a beautiful spring for farming. REV. J. B. SMITH attended the quarterly meeting at Pine grove on the second and third.   Mr. D. W. LANGDON JR went home last week.   Miss LULA MUSGROVE married a few days ago to Mr. JAMES BURTON, and will make her home in Walker County, east of Jasper.   I will close for this time.   P. PATRICK

Marion Herald, May 25, 1887

Glen Allen, Ala. May 24th '87  - Sir, I write to give you a few dots for the Herald this week. The farmers are getting along with their crop splendidly. There is but little cotton planted I this section this year. Mers. J. P. & A. A. PEARCE has just received a large stock of Drygood and groceries. Mr. GEORGE TREADAWAY, the young man who by the slight of hand received several registered letters from the U. S. Mail packs some time since, was arrested some days ago and carried to Fayette C. H. for trial,. He was placed under bond for his appearance at the U. S. Court at Huntsville. No doubt GEORGE will decide that robbing the mail is not very profitable. CONDON & EAGAN has about completed their contract on the Kansas City & Birmingham R. R. D. M. PATTERSON and JOHN LOWE got up with their work, and had a little fight the other day. Wishing the Herald much success. I am Yours Respectfully JACK DAVIS

We have a good literary school at this place, conducted by Prof. MACK PEARCE. Dr. JOHNSON and H. S. MCCLANAHAN are having lots of fun catching fish. Some of the largest are fully three inches long. Lots of guano has been bought in this section and 5 cent cotton may be looked for. J. F. LOWE is moving things around his farm with five plows, and lots of other hands at work. TOM LEE’S new house has been painted and he is moving into it. Success to the News-Press. JACK, Glen Allen, April 13
