I am here in Waukesha yet having sold out my milling business at Mukwonago which is eleven miles south of here. It is a long time since we attended the university together & what[3]a great change has taken place in our lives. Most of the students have passed out from my knowledge of their whereabouts. Those were most happy days.Mr. Youmans (our editor of Waukesha Freeman) & his wife have taken a great interest in your writings for the magazines and frequently have asked me when I have heard from you. I hope you6Are you still in the exploring work yet?That earthquake that shook Sanfrancisco must have been fearful, was Martinez injured any?I will close this disconnected letter with kind regards to you & family.Sincerely yoursJohn Howitt
