KniTOit Cuth!' As our many fr ends
wished to hear fioin us I illondennr
to wiito a brief account or mil journey.
On February 1 1th, with the help of
some of our neighbors, we Iomlt.il up
and ttarted for tlio strip. The liist
night wo stnyed at Mr Mitchell's on
the ranch. The next day wo went to
Lebanon, tiro mud being so Ind we did
not got there until dark. There we
lost our little brown dog named Gyp.
When wo got to Lebanon wo found
that Mr. Fred Rico and wife wore go
ing to start for 1) count; , Oklahoma
Territory, so wc made a luisty visit to
Hollairo to seo mother before going on
our iournev, and thou stinted for tho
trip. It was very cold and rouch and
muddy for about three days. The
first night wo stayod at Mid Brooks,
the second night at Osborn City, tho
third night at Luray. Hero tho bridge
was out and wo had to ford tho river.
Ono of Mr. Rico's horses got down In
tiro rivor and wo had to take a team
over and pull him out. It was very
cold and snowing and not a very good
timo to' take a bath. Tho next town
was Bunker Hill. Hero wo seo a great
whoat country. Miles and miles of
nothing but wheat, all looking fine.
Tho soil is oithor sandy or rod. Every
where the peoplo woro very kind and
hospitable. Nothing of importance
happened on our journey only Mr.
Guthrie went to shoot, some quails and
pulled both triggers at once, but ho
cot no quails. Tho farther south tho
moro sand. Tho prico of corn and po
tatocs raising, buttor and eggs aro
cheaper. When wo got to Stafford
Mr.Ricornadoup his mind to go with
us to our claim. Tho next town was
Medicino Lodgo. Hero wo made somo
purchases of household goods and
started for Waynoka. Whon wo got to
tho claim that wo traded for wo found
only a sand lull and a bad ono at that.
No house, no well, no land broko, only
a fow furrows, and never had been.
About a mile from there it was lovol
and sandy, but good water. Well, now
I toll you wj were a forlorn looking
family. Mr. Rico and Mr. Smith went
with Milton to look over the claim and
made up thoir minds that we could not
make a living on it, so we pulled out
for D county and here we are. We
like the country very well. We find a
great many Smith county people here.
The first night we stayed at Bob Gra
ham's and tho next day we had wild
turkoy for dinner. The next day we
went to Mr. Strickland's and stayed
there a week while Mr. Guthrie went
to Kingfisher to see about the land.
Mr. Strickland's folks wero very kind
to us. Wo rind all of tho people here
very kind. Tboro aro many scattering
claims but the best are going very fast.
Wo are living in a log houso 10x12, on
Mr. Keanon's Dlace. Are going build
on our own placo next week. We are
sixty miles from a railroad.
I will close for this time but you will
hear from us again soon.
Mus. Kate and J. M. Guthrie.
