I think I may have made a royal hash out of this page. I'm not sure if I got the name Aulena Brumfield correct (it certainly doesn't sound correct), and I don't know how Doris and Emit relate.

Ben W. Brumfield

On line 4, I think the reading is "to try to run his new car", but that last letter looks a lot like an X.

Ben W. Brumfield

On line 8, I'm pretty sure that the third letter is a B rather than an L. "Aubrey" is a common name in the area/family, but I don't see a clear Y at the end of the word.

This is the same car that Mr. Dews bought on March 7. Perhaps he doesn't know how to drive? I have no idea what sort of car you could buy in 1919.

According to Bright Leaf, the "daughter" mentioned is actually a boy: Carey James Jefferson.
