"...to any one in need of a Chauffeur..."
"TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN, It gives me great pleasure to recommend to any one in need of a Chauffeur, Banjamin [sic] Hendrickson, who has been with me two years, driving a forty horse power Peerless Car. During that time he has never had an accident, nor has he had the car in the machine shop, being a good machinist, he does his own repairing. He has always proved himself sober and conscientious driver. Respectfully, [signed] | No. 48 Riverside Ave., Red Bank, New Jersey | Feb 304. R.B."
The letter is believed to have been signed by C Walton Cannon, a stockbroker, who is believed to have lived at that address with his wife Harriet, according to the 1910 Federal Census. (Document from KBD collection)
