LANIER BOYS’ HIGH SCHOOL, MACON, GA. – 26
Once an Indian Trading Post, next to grow into Fort Hawkins, this city became known as Macon in 1823. Today Macon is important both in cultural and industrial fields. Its schools offer more than ordinary educational facilities.
Am spending my vacation with Pat and Hank. Macon is a beautiful city. How is school going?

Dear Bev & Jack,
So far I’ve been having a pretty nice vacation! (Sure needed it after 7 yrs. With Gene Smith – eh, Jack?) Guess in about 3 weeks I’ll have to get down to “business.”
Hope all is well with you. Tell Jell & Drew hello for me.
Much love, Joanne & Ann
