Thanks Corsicana Klan For Assistance Given

To the Corsicana Klan, No. 55:

I take this method of thanking you for the nice donation sent me to be applied to the fund for re-roofing Mrs. Jim Little’s house. It came as a thunderbolt from a clear sky unsolicited and unexpected, and put over the efforts of Mr. Ralph Shipp who was raising the funds for this purpose and a worthy cause.

Mrs. Little’s house is now under a new roof and she wishes to thank the Klan an all others that donated or helped in any way.

I am enclosing the letter from the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, which is self-explanatory.

Very respectively,
Chatfield, Texas.

“Corsicana Klan No.55, Realm of Texas, Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, Corsicana, Texas, December 30, 1922.


“Mr. Geo. N. Calloway, Chatfield, Texas.

Dear Sir:

The Corsicana Klan have been advised that you were interesting yourself in behalf of Mrs. Jim Little, knowing the condition of her financial affairs, and being desirous to help in the worthy cause, we are enclosing herewith Ten Dollars in currency to be added to the fund for the purpose of reroofing her home.

“We are firm believers in helping the worthy, protecting the helpless, guarding the chastity of pure womanhood, separation of church and state, free speech, free press, and the enforcement of all laws through the legally constituted authorities.

“We sincerely trust that you and your associates will accept this small donation in the spirit in which it is sent, and that in due time Mrs. Little through your efforts will have a comfortable home.

“Yours very respectfully,
