Transcription"Mr. Johnson - I have studied these carefully and you will be disgusted and disappointed. I was a child of 7 and was kept at home. Front row seated, left to right 3rd. Capt. R? M? Flint - Partner after Civil War was Major in Carlinville, Ill. Bro John says father was office boy there prior to the war. John was not born till '81. 5th next to Major (H.C)? Plumley. 6th Alanson W. Edwards - I am sure. 7th C. A. Roberts - I am sure. 8th 'Jake' Birchall, initials? I am sure. 9th S. G. Roberts (Coz of Charley called the north side Mr. Roberts) I think. 10th Col Plummer ? (Be sure face is familiar the name (?). Please verify these - I never could remember names, faces nor dates. I recall none in the back row nor in the Republican Staff picture. I am sorry. Walker Brothers - I believe - started the book binding shop for Father in connection with the Argus. Should the present use of the Argus building not somewhere be mentioned? The last I knew it was an hotel on 7th St. between Front & 1st ave. A tall building facing east south of the Waldorf Hotel? Unless I am again all wrong. 'Dave Shields' owned, at one time. After '92 I was away much of the time - in college and married - and so I am not positive." - Accompanying letter from Mary E. Belknap [spelling unsure] to Roy Johnson, Feb. 28, 1950, attempting to identify people on print.
