Anyone have a newspapers.com membership?  Looks like there was also a Mable Reed at the same address as David B above.

I did a little searching on GenealogyBank but could find anything.

Why not create a profile for James B. Reed, scan the letter and upload it?  That way it will always be out there for anyone to find.

Thanks everyone.  I will create the profile and post all the photos with letter.  I will check the Mable Reed address.  Ottumwa may be the city.  The handwriting was hard to read.
