made a success in life I am sure you have; and, erected monuments more lasting and enduring than [granate?]. Many are the times I have thought of you bro. Geo. I believe was his name, who attended the University that fall you went out to teach. I have never seen him since. Where is he? Time is telling on us; my hair is turning grey. I do not know as you recollect, but there were some grey hairs when I attended the University. You may recollect J.N. Stewart and M. Griswold whoes room was just above yours and your bro's. Mr. Stewart has been clerk in the State Supt. of Pu[illegible]. Inst. at Madison the past year and Griswold is Co. Judge here. I will close hoping you and family are well.Yours trulyJohn Howitt01618
