[Letter from Neal Moore to C. B. Moore, October 11, 1898]

Description: He was glad to receive a letter from Charles while he was in Colorado. Neal will try to explain what has happened since the last time he wrote. He writes about certain expenses that have thrown him and swear to never have it again. He has gotten some work in San Antonio and is staying with Will Firgh. He has come to the realization that he is not a city person and will eventually become a farmer. He asks Moore to keep an eye out for good land for him. He asks about a job as a farm hand, and mentions that his parents say there is no work in Dallas. He mentions that Minnie was in Boulder for a teachers' convention. He says his parents are doing well, but he and his brother are not. He thinks that his letter did not reach Charles or he did not receive Charles' answer. He says that since he is in the country he has no spare time and has made repairs to the house. He needs to do some planting and hopes to get some work in San Antonio to make more repairs. He would like to hear about Charles.
