It is time I acknowledge some letters for readers. I find it hard to reply to all letters personally, so please excuse. Thank you.

In October of '73 I received a letter from Amwel D. Williams of Randolph, Wis. Yes, Mr. W., I did attend the Welsh Hymn Sing at Peniel Church. How those Welshmen could sing! The day was a hot one over ninety degrees.

Recently a letter came from Mrs. Leonard Sladky of Francis Creek, Wis. She sent me an up to date picture of my 'Huffa Huffa Boy' whom I mentioned in a column a short time ago. He is now a handsome lad of 9-1/2 years, so when I met him at Beaver Dam he must have been about 3. Thank you for writing, Mrs. Sladky. I assume you are his grandmother.

Bob Vilwock and his wife from Plymouth dropped by to chat lately. A nice surprise. Earlier this year we called on the Jerome Pfieffers at Belgium. Mr. Pfieffer has a well equipped shop, and was working on a 10 H.P. Reeves miniature engine which will stand about four feet tall.

On another winter day we drove to Waukesha where we spent some time with Rolland and Mary Buslaff. It was an eye opening experience to see what they have done with an old two-room school house. They have converted this into a combination shop and dwelling place. It is the home of the two of them and their grown daughter.
