Dear Sis Anna. Rec’d our letter today and was glad to hear from you. I am all right feeling pretty good. Ain’t got no news to write. Found some stones but there in no much difference between those found at home. I haven’t be far enough in the mountains. I found a watch for J. Quitek but they ask $9.75 but it is a good watch. 17 jeweled Waltham movement and dust proof case good glass and the jeweler told me if it breaks or does not run so he send it back and he will fix it for nothing so let me know if he will want it or not as soon as you can. And write as I am not staying here long. PS so let me know soon. Bro. John J. Bartos. Crf Great Northern Hotel, 1612 Larimer St Denver, Colorado.
