I am pleased you will find a place to please you. I received your letter in regards to my taxes in that county which was all right. I was trying to get W.E. to go there to attend to it and sell it if he could. I was glad you attended to it it was all right. My six forty is still where I first located it. I cap puting off riting to get you money to send to you it (torn) I could get it was to rite you a few lines to all was rite I wish I could sell it if you get any chance let me know it. I was offered six bits an acre but wanted a dollar last spring the boyes concluded to move there cattle to Kimboel Co. and carrie as menny of ours as they could find.
