Coca Cola Only a Local Affair

Click on the image above for enlargement.
Hard to read but not impossible.
We have no idea who this very faded telegram came from but we know it involved Ida Moran's husband, William Timberlake.  William was an attorney in Jackson Tennessee and was involved in a lot of business deals with and for the Moran's.

I really like how they refer to Coca Cola as "only a local affair".
