Denton glanced out the window of our Home just in time to see one of coach visits Eustis among the visitors to Eustis this week was Fielding h. Yost Michi of of Polar poor old Archie butt we drank to his health and bade him Good Bye. It was the last we Ever saw of him. He lost his life when the titanic went Down at sea. Colonel Downing my. Memory suggests that colonel Arthur Downing who preceded Smith As president of the Chardon Bank aforementioned was among the Early pioneers to Eustis. On my occasional pilgrimages Back to the old Home town in Ohio he was wont to regale me with the beauties of Eustis. He would sit for hours and Tell me stories of his fishing excursions Down Here in the Lake Region. Mentally i May have done my old Friend an injustice for i now recall that some of the stories at the time were regarded As bordering upon exaggeration.

It required Only a casual glance at the car to convince the usually heartless claim agent that there had been something doing he ordered the car sent Down to the Dodge Agency and now we have a car which looks for All the world As Good As new. The Best part of it is that mrs. Denton had been after me to buy a new car and now she fears the consummation of her desire has been indefinitely deferred.
