Additional Details

Nothing overt is mentioned in this little directory, but the suggested camaraderie of these 'reliable business men,' as well as the message printed on the rear cover--'He to whom this directory comes in contact may feel sure he will lose nothing by patronizing these Reliable Business Men'--hints at something more than a normal directory. The minimal size (2-3/4 x 5 inches) is also a bit unusual. This also comes at the peak period of the re-forming of the Klan.
