Help Us Find A.T. Morris of New London, NC

On February 11, 1992, workers renovating a Old West found the above letter buried in a wall. It offers a reward to whoever finds the letter (with the stipulation that the author is still living). I wonder what the reward was.

We’re looking for any information on A.T. Morris of New London, Stanly County, North Carolina, born around 1893, who worked as a metal lather for a dollar an hour (about $13.00/hour now) to renovate Old West where he hid this letter on August 4, 1923.
