Hatch of Salinas City in reference to a field of labor out there. And how I would like to see you.! And now will yo please answer, and send me a good photo of yourself if you have one? and I will send you my photo (recently taken in return) And now when I weight about 183.. tho I am not afraid of the "[awks?] hanging around the old Hollow carrying me off." However I might say that a wineglass dose has. Impatiently waiting a reply I am your very dear_ friendJ. H. Boyes01286
