For that reason I have only time to ozonograph you this mes sage Have been inform d that $ome of the Skagway kids are growing too foxy and that a few of them don't be lieve in me. They had better adopt a j better frame of mind before Christmas, i or I will wipe their names off my list. While there's u tolerably hard lot of children in Skagway, they average up pretty well with those further south i and I have made up my mind to treut ilv m much better than many of them may deserve. 1 want them all to be at i the A.
