I got an imperative telegram from Father4, telling me that I must stop in Red Cloud5 on my way west, and so I had to change all my reservations at the last minute. I spent two days at home6 and am now on the road to New Mexico7 again. My address will be Gallup N.M.8, as I telegraphed you, for ten days or two weeks. I will The Brown Palace Hotel
Denver, Colo.

Hastily W.
