I guess you must think I have forgot you.
But I sure haven’t for there is never a day goes by but I think of you and would like to see you. I
guess you will be surprised to hear that I am at Leslies and Henrys. I didn’t expect to be here so
soon But our gold washing at cotton wood didn’t work out as it should. The place that we were
going to work was being worked by another party.
And I only had a Dollar left and George didn’t have very much so we couldn’t aford to stay there
to long and then mabynot find anything.
So I thought the best thing to do was to get out while the getting was good.
So we beat our way out here. Bud and Leslie got a letter from you yesterday.
You said in Buds letter that you might be in the mine this winter. Ale told me to tell you not to go
in the mine for he said life was to short for to take chances on ruining your health in a old mine.
And I don’t want you to go in the mine either Dear.
Ale Leslie Henry and myself were loading posts at South Hazeton today.
Henrys folks are all well. Bud is down at Carnaby skidding out posts and George and Charlie
are cutting cord wood.
Leslie is giving George a grub stake and he is cutting on speck.
It is offel dry here they need rain bad. I opened your trunk and looked after your gun and clothes
to see if they were damp or not. Mrs. Letoile said to tell you Hullo for her.
Well Dear I guess I will close for this time.
With heaps of love and kisses
