I enjoy your Album so much and always look a lot at the pictures.

As a young man I enjoyed the book, 'The Shepherd of the Hills', written by Harold Bell Wright. I was very much interested in the account of 'Old Matt's' little engine and sawmill plus the grist mill.

Last winter my wife and I visited our daughter living at Table Rock Dam, Missouri. While there I learned that the 'Shepherd of the Hills' country was only a few miles from there on Highway 76 west from Branson, Missouri, only about 7 to 9 miles. Also that Old Matt's possessions had been preserved almost to the letter. I don't know whether this will interest anyone else as it did me, but below are a few snaps that we took while there.
