Letters from Grandpa Tuesday Eve

Note: I do not know the date of this letter, as Grandpa didn't write it on the letter and the postmark is incomplete.--Dimple

Golconda Hot Springs Hotel
Golconda, Nevada

Miss Allene Kelley
1020~15th St.,

"Circumstances alter cases" and the circumstance int his case came this P.M. in the form of a bit of information to the effect that another dentist has himself "billed" for Midas the latter part of this month. In this case it is "first come, first served" so we are going to stay right here where it is comfortable for a few days, or a week, or until we can get into the camp, or find out that it is impossible to get in for a longer period. We are going to beat him to it if we have to camp for the winter.

So send the mail direct to Golconda.

Mr. Dutertre (pronounced Dutree) has accomodated [sic] us with the hotel parlor, gratisfor our operating room. Very nice of him, I think.

That concludes the evenings [sic] performance, dear, as my stock of news is exhausted and one of your inspiring letters is necessary.

Always your

Tuesday Eve.
