ADVENTURE OUT WEST
WITH THE SASPARILLA KID
The Sasparilla Kid ran away from home to become a man and sent his folks the post card below. His papa answered back with the telegram below.
Went into town last night for some iodine as your brother cut himself using my razor and we just stopped by the Gen. Store and you Mother was so happy to get your picture card. We still worry about you a lot but see that you are in good company so will keep saying our prayers for you and know you are a fine young man. Your brothers are jealous but cannot wait til you get back to hear about your trip. Keep up the studying and we will write back again at X-mas.
