Spartanburg Herald , dated December 15, 1917.

Dec. 14- A pitiful plea which came to Gov. Manning today from MRS. ALICE STEPHENS, of Pendleton, who asked for enough sugar to make Christmas cakes for two of her sons now in the regular army, did not fall upon deaf ears, the sum of $5. being contributed by the chief executive, attaches of his office and the statehouse newspaper correspondents for this purpose. In a letter to the governor MRS. STEPHENS stated that she was in poor health , had no sugar, but wanted to send to her sons cakes to make their Christmas brighter. These boys have been in the army 3 years and have never had a furlough, she declares.
[ hope some family finds this interesting]
