Excerpt from The Peace of the Solomon Valley
The newspaper you sent last week was almost like a letter from you, because it was just like you to send the paper instead of writing the message it contained. You know how I welcome every bit of information concerning you and yours, but, of course, you'd never tell me how prosperous you are now. Left it for the Talton Herald to set forth how "Daniel Bronson, one of the well-to-do farmers up on the Solomon, shipped out" - how many carloads of cattle was it? And what is alfalfa coined out of anyhow, that it can bring in such a wad of money to a "well-to-do" farmer? Well-to-do! I should say so, with checks like the one the printer set up coming in with the shipment of stock and sale of that long-legged clover you call alfalfa. Did my heart good to read about it, though, just because your name went with it. I'll confess here that I was afraid at first to look through that newspaper for the blue pencil marks, for fear - oh, well, never mind.
