(Taken from a letter to Will Lundy)

December 23, 1979

Hi, Will and Irene:

I was glad to hear from you, but just kept putting off answering. Bob Eddins called me once and stopped by for a minute later. I was working when he came by.

I worked as a clerk in a liquor store three days a week. I bought a farm after I was discharged and farmed until 1970, but farming got too big and I just had 160 acres and I figured it was too late in life for me to get more land so I quit.

I got sick after I quit. Had cancer and spent five years as well as all I'd saved to get well. I'm all right now except for the effects of chemotherapy. I can't do much work.

I got married once but my wife died in 1968 and I've lived alone since then.

Enough of my troubles. I hope you are doing okay and am sure you are. I still value your friendship as one of the best things that happened to me and won't forget it.
