Size: 8 1/2 x 9"   Condition: very good
Text: La Crescenta Calif. Mar - 25/64 Mr. Chrisman - your very courteous letter need. I will attempt to answer though briefly & with little of interest to add. (next paragraph) Mr. Willard was born in Pott. Co. Kans. And never having lived in the area of which you speak he has nothing to add t the History. But as his wife also from Kansas I would be very pleased to read your book. "Lost Trails of the Cimarron." (next paragraph) In fact I have not reconstructed the areas through which the Cimarron River passed. I do remember that the Cim-River ran through Okla. Not too distant from Faxan. Respectfully yours, Mrs. Hattie B. Willard. 3736 Anderson Ave. La Crescenta Calif. Mrs. Willard 3736 Anderson Ave. La Crescenta, Calif. P.S. I enclose a "not very good picture" I hoped to find one that was autographed but failed at this time. Sent her copy of L.T.
Misc Info: Letter is handwritten in blue ink.
