FAMILY NOTES: The following is a transcript of a letter written by J. Marvin Akins to Mollie Coker regarding plans to elope. This was the second attempt....guess they "got caught" the first time they tried. I have a copy of the original letter in my genealogy book. The last I heard, Uncle Joe Akins had the original letter in his possession. (Freddie Akins) Blairsville, Ga. Oct. 23, 1906 Miss Mollie Coker, dearest sweet child, I will 'right' you a few lines this sad and lonesome night. It is getting late and I won't 'right' much. I just came in from Blue Ridge this evening. I am going to get somebody to carry the mail for me after I go one more trip for a few days. And if you all have that corn shucking next Saturday if you can let me know and I will come and if I don't you be ready a Sunday morning sure. I am fixing for it now. I will get my papers in a day or two. I will be there between 6 and 9 o'clock sometime sure and if they is any body at Mister Jones you and 'Alis' walk out to the meeting house and I will get you there. Don't let nobody find this out but them you ask sure and just as soon as you get ready you come overthere and I will be there when you come. Mollie you ain't 'bin' off of my mind today. Now that is the truth. I could sit here and 'right' all night to you and not get tired but if one of us don't die we will be together this time next week and I hope we will both live a long life. Now I will be there rain or shine. Rain won't hinder me at all. I am so lonesome tonight. I wish we was at meeting tonight at bethel. Well I will 'haft' to make me a cigarette and smoke and then I will close and Mollie, God knows how bad I want to see you tonight but nobody else don't. Well Mollie I will close for this time. If you can answer this just as soon as you get it sure and if you don't I will be there on time so good night and pleasant dreams to you sweet child. So good-bye until Sunday from Marvin A. (Letter was postmarked Oct. 24, 1906)
