the local paper relates, "John Persons, the 16 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. E.D. Persons who killed himself on October 5th, left this in his pocket: "To relatives and friends: - Dear mother and father, brothers and sisters - I am going to rest. I am tired out. I leave my love to all and we hope there is a better day to come. God is with us. Comfort yourselves. Lose no sleep. I hope I have left no enemies. I regret all sins I have committed. Goodbye, dear friends."
