All work in Delta Cotton Mills, Mc Comb, Miss. Smallest boy, a band boy, is Johnnie Mathews, apparently only ten or eleven, but his mother assured me that he is nearly fourteen, which is very doubtful. Been working one year. Couldn't write his name. Next to him is Charlie Davis, a sweeper, seemed to be eleven but his mother told me twelve. Has been working a long time. Father and two brothers in the mill. They own their home. Other boys working there: Arthur Littleton, Harvey Green, Lee Kelley. Location: McComb, Mississippi.
