Adams a_____ [Blanks represent missing parts of the inscription.]
The last sentence begins with a lowercase "t."
There is a rubber stamp inpression also on the back of the photo. There are two concentric circles with the word "The Avery Co. Memphis Tenn." written between the circles. Inside the circles there is something like a German cross with the word "AVERY" written both horizontally and vertically. One "E" serves for both the horizontal and vertical spellings.
