Buffalo Bill's Wild West Combined With Pawnee Bill's Great Far East.

The Elwells [2]
My Very Dear Friends

So glad to get your letters and know that you are well and prosperous. But still the Call of the Wild is in your hearts. How I long for the Mountains and sage brush. I cannot be truly happy away from there. Maby we may meet out in our glorious Mountains again. I am well.

Love to all

Col
