Herewith please find enclosed the photograph which you requested. Trusting that it meets your approval. I doubt if you have an operator of your machine who can set up and knit a complete sock any livelier than “Old Whiskers” or turn a hand spring, pick up a nickel from the floor and not bend the knees, bend backwards and touch the floor with the head. That’s my excercise, and I walk 5 miles per day, then sit down and knit socks and crack jokes, eat apples, and play the piano. The only companions that I have are my music and the Gearhart.
