Belle’s Box – 127

This entry is part [part not set] of 342 in the series Belle's Box

Read about this series of posts, regarding items in a box originally owned by Belle (Lamunion) Fellows Tinker here. The cast of characters is located here. And, there is an accounting of people about whom I have little information here.

I can’t read the postmark on this card, which is addressed to:



Bring over
some Corn
Ties right

The only reasonable reference to “corn ties” that I have found, talks about the process of making corn shocks. Since this card was mailed on the last day of September, it makes sense that the writer was shocking his corn stalks. Charlie Tinker was a jack of all trades, he probably had a certain type of corn tie that the local farmers wanted to use.

Who C.C.S. is will remain a mystery without further information.
