The strong arm of a comrade kind
To help me orlward'with my load.
And while I have no gold to give
And love alone must make amends,
My only prayer is hile I live,
God keep me worthy of my friends"

December 31 was rebeived in the morn

you so politely request. Mark me up

going. Trust you will be as successful
in the journalistic field as you were.
