Minneapolis, Minn., June 4, 1906.


Mr. J. E. Noyes, Greenwood, Wis.


Dear Sir: Well Mr. Noyes how is the world using you and the rest of my Greenwood friends? I am fine and dandy, never was better, although they keep me busy every day. I go fishing every chance I get and have great luck. There are a great many places to go and fishing is good.


Gertie Nelson arrived at our city Monday and is attending the business college here. Naomi is home on her vacation and she and mother are feeling fine.


Enclosed find $1.25 for the Gleaner and change address to 326 East 27th St.


Yours truly, -- E. B. Carpenter

J. E. Noyes, Greenwood Wis.


Friend Noyes: Enclosed find P. O. Order for renewal to the Gleaner. We often think of Greenwood and friends there, and sometimes wish that the old burg was near enough so that we could jump a street car and spend an evening or a few days there occasionally, but it is too far away to make frequent visits.


We felt sure that we would see at least a few of the people from Greenwood out to the Fair last summer but the Brick boys were the only ones that showed up. I never saw such people to stay at home, why don’t they get out and move around and see how this western country looks and how their old friends are? We would be glad to see any of our old friends at any time and the trip would do them good.


Hoping this finds you and your family well and all of our old friends happy and enjoying the best of health.


Yours very truly, -- James Bryden.



Greenwood 2 - Loyal 3.


Greenwood is starting in to make a good finish at ball season this, if a poor beginning is a reliable sign. Yet the beginning is nothing to be ashamed of either, for Sunday’s game proved to be a close one and with good feeling on both sides.


Neither side scored until the third inning when Loyal got one. Then in the fifth the visitors ran in two more, which certainly looked somewhat dismal for the home team. It continued as dismal for Greenwood, until the eighth inning when Huber sent the ball to the tall grass and made home on it, bringing in another score ahead of him. Neither side was able to score again and the game closed with the score 2 to 3 in favor of the Loyal boys.


Litner and Welsch was battery for the visitors, while Carter and Anderson was battery for Greenwood.
