		Dear friend B. O'D. 

	Well the New Year has come &
it is a dark foggy stormy glum day here - 

As I sit her Jan : 13 rather late at night ...

God bless you all - & see my words at bottom re-affirmed

Evn'g - Well how are you getting along there 
	10,000 miles f'm here - & 'how's all'? 
	(as the black people say down south)

The Last drawn pict: 'at 90' is the truest - 
the London Il.. News one is disagreeable,

			and heartily thank you for 
			the papers you have sent  ... 

Just a word anyhow while I am waiting for my supper -
