125 Palmetto St.,
August 24 - 1916
Mississippi Lumber Company,
I wish to apply for the position of office manager as advertised in the January number of THE LUMBERMAN.
I am thirty-five years of age and am married. I have had five years' experience as correspondent and assistant manager of the South Carolina
Lumber Company, Charleston, South Carolina, where I attended to a large part of the correspondence and had considerable experience on the road selling goods and making large contracts.
My sole reason for desiring to make a change is that I see no opportunity for advancement here. I should like to become associated with a firm where the work requires individual responsibility and judgment and where there is an opportunity for promotion.
As to my character and ability, I am permitted to refer you to the Haines-Martin Company, contractors…H. S. Copeland, Cashier of the State Savings Bank and to Rev. W. Earl Brown, Pastor of the First M. E. Church, all of this city and to the Columbia Lumber Company, Columbia, South Carolina.
If you desire any further information, I shall be glad to answer any questions that you may care to ask.
Yours very truly.
