Bro. John Muir

I [illegible] this about a week ago & forgot to forward it. It is not put on record as the rule is they keep them all in their vault till paid so after you have looked it all over you can send it back to me & I will get it on record or you can send it to the Register of deeds office at Wa[illegible] Co. Kans. I am busy breaking colts they may be all sold in the spring & as far as I can see I may have to learn how & go to work. Maggie is still with me she hate to leave me till she knows what I am going to do.

Your bro'r.
