7-12-06 Certainly am glad to hear you are still living. Thought you had forgotten "Mississippi" entirely. Know you are having a fine time. Certainly would like to be with you on the hunting trip. Tell me about it, son. Would you like to be in L'burg now? I'm going to the coast Monday and will write you from there. M. G. [sic]
