dc.description.transcriptionDear Elo: I'm happy to hear from you again. We left on a vacation Oct. 21 and should have been back when your letter of Oct. 31 came. But my wife accidentally fell on a spot of grease on a sidewalk while we were vacationing in Scottsdale, Arizona, and I had to stay 8 days over my two weeks while she was operated on and partly recovered. Then she had to go into a hospital here, after we flew her home with the help of wheelchairs all along the route, and she is not out yet. Between her and my business duties I have been very busy,. which explains why I may have seemed to neglect you! The sample has me puzzled. It responds quite well to a magnet and I will have to grind it and chekc [check] it more closely before I can tell you much. I will go by Bob Brown's shop tomorrow and we will both check It. He is getting along readonably [reasonably] well for his age, but had to have one eye operated on for a cataract and he really needs a hernia operation. I'll sure give him your best wishes. We haven’t played any pool for many years now! Bob raised his three children successfully , which is quite a feat nowadays. His business of engineering and good surveying has been very good and he has a good partner, but he is 70 now and I don’t know how long he wikl [will] go on. I'm ever older than that we are trying to sell our stores, but that is hard to do. I still enjoy workidg [working] on meteorites and gradually giving our collection to TCU in hopes it will be properly preserved. My typewriter was bad. You’ll hear from me the again. Sorry.
