[letterhead]2summer morning but allow him to sleep if the morning was lowsy?"I am very glad indeed that my boyish mental prophecy that my friend of those days would amount to something has been realized.I remember you, doubtless, much better than you do me, for that short term - spring of 1861 - was the only college education my limited resources ever permitted. And the next summer found me carrying a musket in the ranks of the 22d. Wisconsin Infantry, and so on, "endurin the war". Three of us from Racine county occupied rooms together on the second floor of North Hall. Perhaps you will better remember my roommates, Wm. Fuller and John E. Goldsworthy. Fuller is now a leading physician in Grand Rapids, Mich. specialist in brain diseases. Goldsworthy02600
