 [Going back to work. Youngest boy is Richard Millsap. The family record in bible says he is 11 years old - born Jan 22, 1903 (doubtful), and father says 12 years old. He appears to be under 9. Works every day at spinning, and has been working for some weeks. Boss saw investigator photographing him and whistled to him to get out. This photograph was gotten as he went in to work. Then boss took him off his regular job and put him helping others. Mother was furious at boss for not giving Richard and sister (a little older) more steady work. ""He keeps changin em around and helpin others. I'll tell him that if he doesn't give em plenty of work there is plenty of mills that will."" Father and mother both well and able to support family.] Location: Opelika, Alabama
