'The Cotton Crop Is Very Good'

1900 - November 29
The Buchanan Banner-Messenger

Report From Latham Town

Dear Editor:
As I have not written to the Banner-Messenger for some time, I will give the news from this place.
No sickness or weddings to report.
The farmers around Latham are about done gathering.
The corn crop is very light, but the cotton crop is very good - better than we expected.
Mr. W.H. Latham takes up his school at Philadelphia Church Monday the 26th. Henry is a good teacher and we would be glad to know of anybody sending to school.
