Letter: Story of Tom Chaney

Martha Berry writes:
I must have merged two memories. My Dad was Pastor of Horse Cave Methodist Church from about 1937-1941. I can remember going in the "Book Store" (?) and buying a full bag of candy for a penny. I don't remember it as a book store.

just a candy store. This is where my memory grows faulty and merges two memories onto one because I remember Mr. Chaney waiting on us. and remember seeing round restaurant tables. I have been back to Horse Cave Theater a few times so that is probably when I remember talking to Mr. Chaney in the Book Store. The candy store probably was earlier.
