This recording begins by Dell saying a prayer for his wife because she is sick in the hospital and that this is a family recording. He discusses travel to and from North Carolina, and talks about Mrs. Dell’s condition and how people are calling and prayer for her. Dell asks Mrs. Roscoe to join the conversation and she gives prayer. Brother Harley talks about his various positions around town, and how it’s not as unusual that Negroes are serving on boards in Southern Pines, NC. They talk about baseball and Satchel Page. Dell talks a little about his background in Georgia and churches in that area.
