a flying trip to Oklahoma where my people now live. It is a "beautiful land indeed, as its name indicates. Have you ever been in that part of the country? My father recently sold his land in N-[W?] Missouri and bought in O[illegible]. He has much better health from there. He bought me a quarter section while I was there; but the man who lived on it had not yet "[proved?] up", andI had to file on it under the homestead law, and I presume I shall be obliged to reside on it after six months - for 8 mos. before I can get a deed to it. It is adjoining my father's land, so I shall be quite at home. We are to build a new house this fall, and it will be enjoyable to be there. There are woods, and a creek, red walled canons [diacritic], all sorts of wild creatures
