"I think I will take to smoking"
"I suppose you have forgotten me by this time so I will send this to let you know I am still on earth. How is every 'little' thing in Mo.

It would not seem quite right to be anyplace else".
Mailed from C.N.S. in Waterloo, Iowa to Miss L.L. Buren in Princeton, Mo. on December 23, 1907
