the “Mound Hill Farm” they would not know what you meant. If you asked for the old “[Galloway] Farm” they still wouldn’t know. For they tell me not one of the old neighbors live there now, and it is more than fifty years since we lived there. Sixty would be nearer it, I guess. I have forgotten the dates. The old farm may be a ruin now, but it is still a lovely memory to me. My father kept it like a garden, and his cattle and his horses and other stock were always the best. It was the finest place in the neighborhood. Uncle John used to come there sometimes in the summer to help in the harvest and earn some money. That was when I was small.

I’ll be glad to tell you anything I can about “Mound Hill Farm” if you need it. You are welcome to use anything in this carbon copy if you want. You may copy, or quote me, or whatever serves your purpose.
