Dear Friend Fred

Its with pleasure I take the opportunity of writing you a few lines in answer to your long looked for and very interesting letter which I received on the 17th and was more than pleased to hear from you again and that yourself & family and every one was getting on O.K. and that you are doing good on your Quatz claims and am also glad to hear that the liberals got in and that old Hopp is no danger of going out of Business he was no good for the country any way and the sooner he goes to the wall the better it will be for the community in general. I also hope that Kierney makes good for every thing will help the camp out and I also hope that the Houser makes it stick for if there is a man in that country deserves to strike it it is Bill Houser he is working all
