Phyllis & children, please accept an old friends deepest condolences,

And if you start to go to that country, remember first you must sell everything you have, pigs, pastures, pepper pickers, pitchforks, put the spot cash money in a ragbag and go to the railroad station, and ask the ticket agent for a long yellow leather slab ticket with a blue spanch across it, and you musn’t be surprised if the ticket agent wipes sleep from his eyes and asks, so far, so early? So soon?…………….
