Saint Louis, Mo., Saturday evening, Oct 2, ’52

Old fellow

Your uncle Keyes[1], myself & the dogs all got down to this city safely – I have collected all my money to buy sheep with; and uncle Keyes & I have engaged a state room in the steam Boat called the “Forrest City” that goes out this evening – so we have better luck than common, in being able to accomplish during the day what was contemplated in the morning. Give my love to Theodore[2] & Robert[3] and all the rest of the folks – and Keyes says so too.

Your affectionate uncle,

Willis Fawcett
