Walter Bickett Thanks Dear Old Union County, 1916

“Card From Hon. T.W. Bickett,” from the Friday, June 16, 1916 issue of The Monroe Journal—“The Union County Paper—Everybody Reads It”
To the folks at home: In the Bickett column “Sweet Union” leads all the rest. In royal fashion she stood by her native son, and that son can never forget the tribute of love for him and his people—most of whom have passed over the Great Divide. God bless dear old Union! May she prosper in basket and store, and may her hard-working, debt-paying, God-fearing citizenship continue to be an asset and an inspiration to the State.
                --Walter Bickett
