My Dear George

Do you think we can kill an Elk then or will the snow be to deep find out from the people ho the winters are Salsbury & Bleistein say we ought to have in our contracts to parties who we sell Waterrights [3] that they are to work so many days a year on roads. So we will have good rods [4]
