"Dear Mr. Carter: I received a letter from mama tonight in which she says that you would like some bear post cards and also one of the three squaws. I shall be very pleased to send them and will make them tomorrow. I am having a fine time up here this summer, but wish that I could have gotten one of your lenses to try. I think the idea is a good one and if it has not already been used ought to take. This is the Fresno-Shaver stage on its arrival here. I took this picture last summer. Yours sincerely, Elvon Musick".
