I have not seen Will Mitchell for some time and so do not know how well he is now or just what kind of work he could undertake. For some years he has been employed by the Winona Mill Company of Minn. and Dakota acting as grain buyer and had charge of the elevator at several places. he only discontinued work on account of his health. both last year and this he has been obliged to come to Milwaukee to have tumors removed from his neck and shoulder and still others make their appearance.
