fellows were indebted to you for many kindnesses, & do not forget you. [in margin: 322?] Will you kindly tell me the year of your first coming to the Wis. State Fair & when you entered the University? Also - whether you were employed at Prairie du Chien for a time by Norman [illegible]d? and later - after leaving the University went to Fort Wayne, &, having been [injured?] thence went to California? I am not preparing an article for publication, but I have been asked by a Ladies' Club to talk about you. My work in the University preceded & followed the years you were there. Of the old time Faculty only Dr Butler & I are left, he still as vigorous of mind as ever. The Carrs - you must know all about them The Doctor dead & Mrs Carr pitifully unbalanced, broken down by her [sores?], I am told. Such is the latest news I have had from [Pasadena?] where I had a sister residing. Pardon me if I am intruding, please, and count me as an old friend and well-wisher.Joseph C. Pickard
