I’m sending the remaining three pictures today and that is all for the present. You will note I don’t appear in any of these. I think you can tell that easily enough.
I mailed you two letters yesterday – one with the pictures and one with the check. I suppose the one with the check will be delayed and the one with the pictures will sail right through. Use the money as you see fit and you possibly have many places for it.
[page 2] The Newton Co. E. came yesterday. The issue of Aug. 5. Most of the news yu had already written, but I did see when Joe Mullens’ mother died and Chas. Molter ran a fork in his head. Both used to be good patients of mine. I often see that in the paper, however, and I just wonder what my competitor tells them and how they are treated in general. I guess as good as most people are medically treated now.
Well, with the pictures I can’t add too much in paper so I’ll promise more next time.

Well, this sounds grim! ” Chas. Molter ran a fork in his head” That story is buried somewhere in the Newton County Enterprise!
” I just wonder what my competitor tells them and how they are treated in general.” LOL 🙂
“Most of the news yu had already written” should read “you had”
The fork story sounded so intriguing!
