shone out quite warm. I & John

gold 76$. I got Laurance & Roister
to prop up a large pitch pine that
we cut down & have run the dirt
from under it for 75ft of the but
except the stump & the end lays
on the Roots since I recvd a letter
from wife stating that she did not
expect to come to cala under the pre
