Dear Fbiekw Hosmer: Perhaps a
note from the far east may not.be
amiss. Very often memory carries
one back over the past and make it
pleasant to recall names and happy
associations. Being located in a very
different clime 'tis, pleasant to com-
'pare notes that the livine vital princi
pal of friendship f be kept fresh and
grVen. I read wjth very much de
light and real-interest our ever wel
come visitor Ihe'dniEF" and so heep
up with the Anies in far off Red Cloud
as .well'as hereat home. We live in'a
biey prosperous young city of ten
thousand souls. Injl882 there were
only five hundred-people, so you can
readily see tiioir great has been Roan
oke's growth and development. The
people here very confidingly look for a
wonderfully prosperous year upon
which we have just entered. Politics I
am lolil, were very lively here last fall
but,'after election, the people very
wisely settled' down to business, and
all of all parties worked and continue
to work for the general goed. Asa
result we have but few to complain,
and fiadlfault Thereal estate business
is" very active indecd,"and much prop
erty is constantly changing hands, and
as a consequence business of all kinds
is brisk . We have a number of whole
rsaleTiouses and also a number of man
'ufiifctorie3 of various kinds.
I beg pardon" for using so much
