7 Bar L. Hereford Ranch Moose Creek, MB November 22, 1961

"I am more or less forced to write a story for our 25 grandchildren who keep me busy answering questions all day long. Riding down the river in the Skippy L, sitting up front on the barge watching the river go by, or just sitting out in the alfalfa fields watching a bunch of calves lying down with a couple of nurse cows looking after them. These kids just keep on asking questions. They are as bad as our own boys and girls for wanting to know about long ago."

Thus begins a long letter to his family and friends detailing his life and encounters with remarkable people who come alive in his words. His memory for detail plus a keen wit made him a first class raconteur. To view the remainder of the letter, please
