Cemetery Association
Letters of Appreciation of the work Done by Cemetery Association.
The following are sample letters received by Mrs. C. G. Austin, corresponding secretary of the Lineville Cemetery Association from former well known residents of Lineville in remitting contributions for the cemetery fund. About $50 has been received thus far this season from non-residents showing that they appreciate the noble work being done by the association in caring for and beautifying the resting place of their beloved dead:

Forest, Miss, Apr 14, 1909, Mrs. C. G. Austin, Cor. Sec'y, Lineville Cemetery Association, Dear Friend-I am in receipt of your circular appeal, dated the 10th, inst., for aid in improving the Lineville cemeteries and in response to same I herewith enclose certified check on Bank of Forest for $5.00 which will help some in the good work the noble women of Lineville are doing toward beautifying the last resting place of our loved ones at home, etc. I trust to be able to contribute to your Association again later on. Your friend, E. E. Butler.
Bonaparte, April 14, 1909. My Dear Mrs. Austin: -- I do not know how you distribute the Cemetery funds, would suppose equally between the two cemeteries. As our loved ones are sleeping in the south side cemetery, we feel a greater interest there. The ladies of Lineville are certainly deserving of a great deal of praise for so worthy and noble an undertaking. I trust you will at no time find any difficulty in raising the amount needed to keep the city of the dead, "The City beautiful." We gladly send our small donation. Yours Sincerely, Nora Meek
Tucumcari, N. M., April 13, 1909 Mrs. C. G. Austin, Dear Friend, -- Your letter received this morning and will say that we will be glad to help you in your good cause, etc. Please accept this check for $10.00 and when you want more let us know. With kindest regards, R. P. Donohoo
Lineville, Ia, Apr. 16, 1909 Mrs. Nona Austin: -- The Cemetery Association is doing a grand work and has my best wishes. I. S. Bracewell.
