Samuel eventually became a well-known photographer and daughter of the teacher and poet Mae Walker.

He would soon marry Lula Ann Stepp but had not done so yet.

Mr W. A. Walker
Sandlick, Tenn

Dear Brother, I got your letter and card. I glad to hear from. I don't know what to tell you about the that school. But $25. is not a nuff. If you could give me $30. If I could bord at your house, I believe I would come. I am traveling for the Southern Supply Co., Chattanooga, Tenn, but I don't like it. I can get to travel for a tobacco firm [in] Danvil, Va, if I had a nuff money to pay my expenses for 1 month. I will let you know by the first of next

month what I will do about the school. I wrote you a few days a go and ask you about getting me a mule and what it would cost me.
I could sell it to the mine Co. I hope you are all well. I am not much well now.

I am yours truly
