Your Old Chum


Note, dated June 8th, 1928:

My Dear Hardin:

Thirty eight years have passed since last I was here. During that time I have thought of you and this country of big hills a great many times, and have looked forward to coming again to see the old places and the old friends, if any of the latter remained. I have seen many parts of our country but it is hard to find one more delightful than this, and I have always cherished my memories of it.

I have enjoyed the hospitality of your harming home and hope you will sometime visit me. I am indebted to my cousins, whose names appear below, for the pleasure of this present visit.

Your old chum,
Homer C. Brown
