The Vernacular: A Freak Of The Wild And Woolly West

Casper, Wyoming
Sept. 6, 1914

Dear Ma:

At last I am here and like it very much. This is a great country. The people are so sociable one feels at home with them at once. This town has about 6,000 people in it, you ought to see the school building. They are simply great. The scenery around here is fine too. We are in sight of the Casper Mtns. Next Saturday all of us teachers are going to take a trip out to them + picnic there all day. The air here is so pure + bracing. The altitude is high as we are over 5,000 ft. I wish I could see all of your folks tho + have a good visit.

Much love,
