01675[letterhead]since, He married & has one little girl. Has a nice home & seems quite comfortable & seems contented to remain there the rest of his days. Leslie Sulgrove, took to journalism and was connected with Russel Harrison in his venture in that line in Montana. where he is now I do not know. Mr Davis who was Supt of the Sunday School was with the Indiana Bank when it failed a few years ago. I met him when I was in Indianapolis some time ago. He was there with the water company. “Lige” Halford. President Harrisons private secretary was secretary of the school at that time I believe. How many times have I recalled the meetings we used to have in your rooms. I have found the instructions we received at your hands in those meetings of great use to me in after life, and many a time have I amused the children telling of the wonderful clocks, barometers, bed steads &c which you had accumulated around you. Well I’ll not exhaust your patience this time but wait for a letter from you before inflicting any more on youYours truly John H Means
