Its quiet and rest now for some months to try to get that over worked beast of mine to near normal condition and then prudent regulation of such activities as I may properly allow myself.Your letter is so full of cheer and so helpful that my "jailoress" allows me to pen this short reply. With deep appreciation yours faithfully, E. T. Parsons. 05745
