[3][letterhead]It is only about the ashes of the [loved?] ones and the places which knew them best – that I go to seek them now-I feel that I am not growing younger and yet I enjoy life and nature and its beauty as much as ever- But what it would be to go to the Grand Canon [diacritic] and the fossil Forest with you for the balast of wisdom and the girls for charms of youth and loveliness - I am thankful that it all appeals to me still as it ever did -I hope I will hear from you and good news of the dear invalid.Believe me always and to the last faithfully and with most loving admirationTom Robinhood04525
