Biographical/Historical Sketch:

James C. Cole was a resident of New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1907. He was probably a student in a school there, although no particular institution can be identified.

Scope and Content:

One letter from James C. Cole in New Orleans, Louisiana, to Miss Eula H. Ellis of Florence, Mississippi. The accompanying envelope was postmarked April 4, 1907, from New Orleans.

Cole was a student and had been studying for his upcoming examinations, which he said were "monstrous, and mean more than you can think." Constant studying for his examinations was the explanation given to Miss Ellis for not writing more often. Cole also expressed concern that Miss Ellis might have other beaus. He requested that she continue to write him "out of the fullness of your heart."
