This six months or more of a daily grind. I can't stand like I used to. I think we will close the season Nov. 4th. Then I go to Denver first to see May and Louie. Then out to Cody. Will is still with me. We will go to Denver together…Business only fair. I would like to know how you all are." Cody adds a brief postscript: "I'll send the painting when I get home." Matted to an overall size of 11 x 14. In fine condition, with light staining along the top edge, and slight brushing to the signature. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from JSA.
