Dear Sir;- We arrived in St. John, togeth er with my mother and family, on Teb. 27th. all O. K. We are well pleased with this country so far. Have hail a good rain since we ar rived. Wheat prospects are very good from what most farmers say for an average crop. They had n good corn crop here last year, and are now thru gathering. The corn is gathered from the stalk in the field and then shelled on the farm before being marketed, and is worth at present $1.70 per bushel. The principal crops here are mostly wheat and corn. They raise some hogs and cattle but not so much as in Ky, as there is very little grass land here which accounts for not not being bo much stock raised. Land is worth from fifty to one hundred dollars per acre. The principal hay crop is alfalfa. There are nice modern homes here with splendid buildings. Farm labor is scarce, this perhaps on account of war situation as the people hern are very loyal to the cause of war.. We aim to leave here next week for Strasburg, Colo, where we hope to make our future home. Will you kindly send the RECORD to. that piece as we will bo anxious to get it regularly. We are enjoying good health so far. Wishing you and all my friends the best of luck. Yours truly, J. W.
