Wooster (not Worcester) Ohio. Jan 26, '97.Friend of my Soul:Your letter has reached me this minute and I will answer it "while it is hot."I acknowledge my culpable neglect of your much valued correspondence. (That sounds formal, but it is sincere.) But you surely got my note written last Spring, immediately after your first letter. If you did not, you must have left on your profound trip before it arrived. Not hearing any response to that, and the other being long delayed in the P.O. of Cedar Falls, Iowa, I did not send the account of Stickine which I had written & herewith enclose.But I feel that I have had no adequate excuse for not writing much & often to02227
