10245 W. 14th Ave., Denver, Co 80215 August 27, 1989 Mr. Jack Bailey, 615 Storey Blvd., Apt 317 Cheyenne, Wyo. 82001 Dear Friend Jack: First of all, I want to apologize for being so late in acknowledging your good letter and the fine pix you sent by Doubleday. I certainly appreciate then and have added them to my collection, which will pass on to some good repository where they will receive good care and be made available to other writers in the future. If you have others you would care to pass along, do so, for it is a shame so many old papers, letters and pictures are thrown away when an old timer dies. My mother was a great “saver” and I inherited a lot from her, family geneology, etc, etc. Her brother, Ray Hunter, was a rodeo performer back in 1910-14 and she had several good photos of him bronc riding and bull-dogging but somehow they were lost (or taken) from her collections. What I wouldn’t give to have them now….
