Glass quart sealer full of pay stubs from 1938 to 1939 for Rosamond Woolen Company employee Jason Guthrie. Mr. Guthrie was unable to receive a mortgage for a home from any of the local banks due to his income. He went to the Rosamond Woolen Company asking for a slight raise in order to be able to be approved. The company was unable to give him a pay raise but granted him a mortgage through the company. These pay stubs have deductions for mortgage payments.
