Mr. J. S. Murphy on His Trip Thru' Texas.
We are now at Henrietta, Clay county..... We are domiciled with Mr. G. M. Nunnelley and wife, from whom we received a cordial welcome. Their daughter, who is my cousin, married Mr. A. V. Winters, a prosperous business man who is in the mercantile business here.
Wherever I go I run across the Interior Journal. Even Uncle Green, 1,200 miles away from Stanford, gets the I. J.
(G. M. (Green) Nunnelley is Mattie's uncle)
