1920 Debt Is Paid To Retired Grocer LeRoy Bixler, 85, said yesterday yesterday that his son, Ernest, of Kirkwood, recently received an unsigned letter with an attached $20 bill, reportedly a payment of a debjt owned to Bixler since around 1920. The retired Springfield grocer said the letter referred to "the produce market on 14th street." Bixler said he operated a business business at that location in St. Louis several years ago. He added that the debt was incurred, as close as be could estimate, around 1920 to 1922.
