GLOBE OPTICAL COMPANYSecond Sheet.J.M. #2example will be followed by many others in all parts of the country.My folks have just bought a large farm in Reading, 14 miles out from Boston, and are going to live there and enjoy the country life. At the same time my father and I will come into work every day. We have 15 ot 20 acres of fine young woods, mostly white pine, and shall guard them with jealous care. I hope next time you come East, that you can come out and see our farm and the fine old colonial house on it. I am thinking of sleeping out in a tent, or under the trees, this summer, as I like the open air. I would like to go with the Sierra Club up into the Kern River country, but I fear I cannot get away this year.With best wishes, I am,Very truly yours,[illegible]039C
