A correspondent named “Cutie” from Chapmanville in Logan County, West Virginia, offered the following items, which the Logan Banner printed on February 3, 1922:
We are having some nice weather at this writing and everybody seems to be enjoying life.
School is progressing nicely here under the management of W.J. Bachtel, principal.
Rev. Langdon is holding a revival here at present. He is having great success, large attendance and several have been converted.
We think the Tompkins mines will have to be enlarged since the Chapmanville boys have gone to work.
Mr. Chilton Chapman took Miss Lola Ferrell home Sunday night. Call again, Chilton.
Red caps are stylish here now. I wish I were a girl, but you know boys don’t wear red caps.
There is a bunch of boys and girls employed here in letting S (?) pass.
Miss Maude Ferrell was wearing a ten cent smile. Wanda, did you get a good letter?
Miss Devonah Butcher will leave for Charleston the first of the month where she will enter high school.
Mr. Jim Bryant and Millard Brown have just returned from New York where they have been taking mechanical training.
Mr. Klinger and Miss Gay Stone seem to be enjoying the morning air. Gay says Klinger is all right. Now, what do you girls think about it?
We are sorry to say that Mrs. Julia Conley is very ill at this time.
Miss Maud McCloud seems to be very lonely now days. Cheer up, Pearlie will come back again soon.
Will see you again next week.
