Willie Cheatham, Western Union messenger #1. Says he is 16 years now; been messenger for 6 years. Late Sunday night, October 4th, I talked with him, still on duty, until 10 P.M. "You bet I know every crooked house in town. Went to school with one of those girls when she was straight. He[r] mother died and she went bad. Some young girls were there too. I go out to Red Light some with messages and packages, and if I want to, I bust right in and sit down." Hard face.  Location: Montgomery, Alabama.
