Just a line or two; I want to
thank you for the papers, especially
the Algiers Herald. I assure you
it was worth mxre than fifty dollars
to me. In fr't, you can't imagine
how I appreciate it. I read it over
and over. It recalled by-gone days
-days of my youth-days that I
spent in boyhood happy hours. As
I read over the names of the young
folks having card parties and dances
iand the grand old game of euchre.
Some of the young ones who are
sparking and hold hands at the old0
garden gate, their fathers and
mothers were my boyhood friends.
and I guess I once danced with them
and now I am growing old, but I
still dance. I am like a cat on my
feet. I hardly ever miss a dance
given by the B. P. O. E. No. 142 and

When you are living many miles
away from the land of your boyhood
days and when you receive a paper
from your home town, then, and not
until then will you know how much
I appreciate reading the Algiers'
news. So, dear brother W. O. W..
