Dear Folks:

We were delayed
for a day in
Oklahoma City by
generator trouble, but
everything is fixed up
now, and we are again
Westward bound.

Notes by RWF:

The car with generator trouble was a 1936 Buick sedan, recently purchased.

I've seen these oil wells pumping industriously on the State Capitol Grounds in Oklahoma City. It's a joy to see a state government appreciating the value of American-produced energy.
