Photo of Ordinary's Certificate for Bronson Beers, 9 years old, (and therefore illegal). The Deputy Clerk told me "That was likely a clerical error." but I found five of these "errors" issued to children under 10 years old, one for child aged 8. (The latter was later marked 'Void' but none of the rest were.) Rolly's teacher told me the family had moved, but that the boy was a mere baby with a lisp. The issuing of the certificates is very unbusinesslike. (See Vaughn's report, Georgia, 1913.) The Ordinary said, "I'm a practical Man! The cotton mill people are the poorest paid workers in the country. They have to put their children into the mills." Location: Columbus, Georgia. Date Created/Published: 1913 April.
