Miss Elisabeth Williams, Librarian, Bossier Parish Library
Box 247, Benton, Louisiana
Dear Miss Williams:

I located the two pictures of the two houses and decided to send them along to add to the Koran collection I also found the account of the interview which I reported in Pine Cones (Tech student publication in my student days here), which reports. W.D. Van Arsdel, who is mentioned in the Census Records and in my cemetery speech, 1960. Dr. Sachs (English Department) preferred that I send along ONLY the Van Arsdel story, saying that it might just be that someone else would want a similar article from the 1933-34 issue. Of course,
the Tech library has a complete file and I have my own personal copy. The one which I am sending you was from an "extra" which Dr. Sachs had stored away in his office.
I am so glad that you found the material that I sent of interest.I don't know of anything more that I am likely to have. If it comes along, I shall remember you folks.
Sincerely yours,
People VanArsdel, William D.
