Remember when the preacher baptized in the river with the saved person fully dressed? This great image has been shared by a reader. Here is what he wrote to me.
Sending a scan of a baptizing. Notation on back gives name and location. I think the name is Henry Biden ?. This body 0f water the Little Red or is it a large farm pond. Got this card in Cave City several years ago. Sending four scans one at a time. Hope your readers like it.
The back of the card looks like this.
Here's a closeup. They have probably had a revival and the "converts" are all being baptized at the same time. Note the hand made outfits of the ladies. Everyone used to sew. Now we can buy clothes made overseas cheaper than we can buy sewing materials.
And here's another closeup. And our new friend, James Whitlow, sent all four of these to me in perfect order for a blog! Thanks again to James for bringing us more White County history.
