C. A. Earle Rinker letter to his mother, August 10, 1907, page 2

Full Text

It is always cool in the shade though and I am never out in sun much. What kind of a deal could you get on the Ellison property. Suppose you could pay so much cash and make the balance in payments. I wouldn't want to put very much in property just now because I want to keep my money here where the opportunities for investing it to the better advantage are so thick. Of course mining isn't so sure as real-estate but it counts if you do hit it. Now about my face and the small pox. Didn't I tell you my face was perfectly well. Guess I will have my face painted and send you a photo. Now don't you worry about me because if anything serious comes up or happens to me I will let you know at once. Wish I could have been there to help the boys take in hay. Don't expect I would have been worth as much as the girls were when it came to help. You and Dady seem to have a deal of a time of it. I hope you fellows will get to see California some time. I think that would do you both good. So the boys are girl struck. Well the girls may be O.K. but the boys will get over it if they just go slow. I remember that Lige McClintock. Tell Dady to ask him if he is still in the chicken business.
