Finding aid only for Manuscripts Small Collection 3349. Undated letter to Mary Bryan, Paducah, Kentucky, from a disappointed suitor. He describes arriving at her home to find her already departed for other amusements, and his distress at her possible preference for riding in a car rather than his “tiresome old buggy.” Embarrassed and hurt, he nevertheless declares his affection and denies any intention to offend her. Includes a photo postcard to Mary showing a social gathering.
