THIS SIDE OF CARD IS FOR ADDRESS ONLY Mr. Roscoe Cather1 Lander3 Wyoming BOSTON MASS.2 FEP 6 1912 4-PM Back Bay Station2 Dear Roscoe1

I'm so glad you like the story4, and that was a nice, nice letter you wrote me. I've had a rough little bit of surgery5 & am not good for much yet. All turned out well, but I was under ether for three hours and that takes one's strength awfully. It seems to burn you up and leaves you weak and watery for a long while. I get about very feebly as yet.
