May 12,'52 To Alice Q. Many thanks for your very fine letter. It is things like that that make story writing worth while.I will try to dig up the story you want. But it will have to be in about 6 months as it is stored away in the files with a lot of other stuff. For 6 months to go to Prescott, Arizona where we used to have a cattle outfit. It is pine tree country Your description of the country around Chimney Rock sounds beautiful.
Would like to see it. You would like Arizona the desert with the cactus in bloom in the spring. Perhaps you may get out there or to my old range in the Little Rockies in Montana.
Over- [page 2 of inscription] I broke the little buckskin mare called Peanuts. She is a calf-roping horse. Buckskin and a carrot eaten bet.
When I can find them I will send you snapshots of the other chestnut mare Calamity Jane and her filly Jodie. All of them quarter horses.
In haste, now Mighty Sincerely Walt. Address Rancho Santa Fe, Calif.
